Banana Breakfast Boost

Updated: Oct 8, 2019

This is my latest breakfast obsession! If you love peanut butter and banana combos then this recipe is made for you! Check out my IGTV video to watch this healthy recipe come to life @marley.sue

Before you get started, I have a few special steps to make this the best breakfast shake!


Tip #1 - Slice and freeze your banana the night before! Frozen banana will make your shake super cold and refreshing.

Tip #2 - If you eat dairy, greek yogurt will thicken things up. Non-dairy substitutes like plant milk and coconut yogurt work just as well though!

Tip #3 - Make a few ice cubes using your milk of choice. I opt for coconut milk! Unlike regular ice cubes, this tip won't water down or make your shake icy.


Ingredients:

-banana

-dates

-cinnamon

-coconut milk

-coconut milk ice cubes

-peanut butter

-greek yogurt


Recipe:

Start out with roughly 1/4 cup of your milk of choice. Adding the liquid first prevents some of the other ingredients from sticking! Next add in one frozen banana, a few dashes of cinnamon, three pitted dates, and one tablespoon peanut butter. Scoop three big spoonfuls of yogurt or a small container of yogurt (about 5 ounces) into your blender. Finish your shake off with a few ice cubes and a little more milk to make sure everything blends smoothly. These measurements do not have to be exact and sometimes I add more banana or peanut butter depending on the flavor I am craving!


This banana breakfast drink is a sweet, frothy treat perfect for on-the-go or post-workout! Sip on this shake with a reusable straw - mine is from Strawesome.


Health Benefits:

-fiber

-potassium

-healthy fats

-lower blood pressure

-antioxidants

-protein


If you have sore muscles or crushed a workout today, try this potassium-packed shake! You probably already know that banana is a common source of potassium, but peanut butter, medjool dates, and greek yogurt contain high levels of potassium as well! Another health tip is to add cinnamon to all of your breakfasts because it naturally lowers blood pressure, decreases inflammation, and is high in antioxidants. Greek yogurt bulks up this shake with protein and probiotics + coconut milk adds extra creaminess.


~ If you want to make this recipe even more filling, blend in some old-fashioned rolled oats or chia seeds ~


Enjoy breakfast babes!
