Peanut Butter Smoothie

It has recently been brought to my attention, (by a close friend and fellow peanut butter addict!) that today is the best day in the whole year! What I mean by this is that it of course it National Peanut Butter Day!

So in celebration I am going to post my recipe for the perfect Peanut Butter Smoothie :)

Did I mention it is really fun to eat out of an empty (but not completely cleaned out) peanut butter jar?! Mmmmm!

This makes 1 serving:

-Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt (6 oz.) -frozen!
     ~This can either be vanilla, plain, or pina colada (sounds weird, but amazingly delicious!)
-2/3 Cup Milk
-2 TBSP. Peanut Butter
     ~Any kind will work but when you have the choice always go with natural!

1. Add all to a blender, mix and enjoy!
2. Optional: Top with whipped cream and chopped peanuts! :)

-Add a frozen (or thawed) banana
-Add a handful of chocolate chips
-Add a few Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
-For extra protein: add 2 TBSP vanilla or chocolate protein powder
-Swirl in 1 TBSP of jam after mixing the smoothie for a PB&J smoothie!
-Crunch an Oreo on top
-For a heartier smoothie: add 1/4 cup oatmeal to blender before mixing
