    I found a recipe similar to this in a healthy cookbook. If you lower the peanut butter content to just 1 tbsp, and add 1/4 tsp nutmeg, it's tastier and has less calories. :D Good suggestion! - 7/2/08

    Great fast breakfast....for all you folks that always have a few bananas go to waste...just remember to peel them cut into chunks(size of ice cubes) and freeze...never waste another banana and be ready to blend up a smoothie on a moments notice. - 1/19/10

    I had a sliced banana in the freezer, so I used a 1/2 cup of frozen banana. I also halved the peanut butter & added "Cinnamon Plus."
    It was really tasty. A nice breakfast. - 10/31/09

    This was delicious! I had my 6 yr old son taste it & he was leary at first. Then he started liking it after a couple of sips. 374.4 calories isn't bad. Sparks has me on a 338-420 plan on certain days even. All depends on ur plan. U have to eat to lose. Bananas, peanut butter & skim milk. Perfect! - 6/19/08

    Loved this! Great summer breakfast. I pack my breakfasts full of protein, so this was PERFECT. 374 cals. isn't too bad, I work at a summer camp, so I am constantly on-the-go all day long. YuMmY!
    I added 6-8 ice cubes to mine to make it a bit thicker. It also makes it feel like I'm "eating" more - 5/27/08

    I tried this recipe this morning. I modified it a little. Instead of the non-fat milk i used 8th continent light soymilk, 1 tbsp pb, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/4tsp nutmeg. It was delicious. It's probably my favorite smoothie thus far. - 1/10/11

    It's very good. I am always looking for something a little high in calories than what I usually go for which is 200-300. I don't get enough calories in the morning and I am always low on protein. This is great and I will make it again and again - 2/11/10

    Of course with the excellent MUFA (mono-unsaturated fat) of Peanut Butter it's going to sustain you quite awhile. I like the feedback of cutting down on the amount of PB to reduce the calories and add cinimon or nutmeg for more flavor. - 6/8/09

  • This is an awesome breakfast! I needed some caffeine so I added a splash of coffee to it (barely enough to even taste it)....& i felt the taste of the peanut butter was a little overwhelming, so I also added about a fourth cup of blueberries to detract from that a bit. Delicious!! - 1/15/12

    This sounds delicious but I do not drink my calories. I need to chew on my breakfast, and I would rather dip my banana into the PB and bite it, and drink the milk on the side but that is just me. I know many athletes enjoy smoothies after working out. Thanks for sharing! :-) - 2/3/09
