Healthy Breakfast Smoothie


I've felt the need to do a "sort of" detox on my body lately. Obviously, being pregnant I can't do the full-blown juice detox that my friends do sometimes, but avoiding sugary, processed foods is always a plus in my book. As many of my friends on Facebook know, I've recently become a Pinterest addict. I LOVE looking through all the recipes (some extremely healthy, some....not so healthy but still VERY appetizing), and I figured this one was simple enough to make for breakfast for Tony and I. My little guy loves smoothies as much as I do, and since we're past the "is peanut butter safe for my baby?" stage, I was excited to give this recipe a try. In the interest of making this recipe as healthy as possible, I used skim milk and natural peanut butter. I had completely forgotten to freeze the bananas ahead of time, so I just added about 1/2 cup of ice cubes to the blender, and it worked perfectly. This smoothie was amazing, and I am so happy to add it to our rotating breakfast foods! :)
