Introduction: How to Make the World's Best Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

About: Mom to a little girl. Home cook.

The combination of bananas and peanut butter just does it for me - both flavor and nutrition wise.

Both bananas and peanut butter are high in potassium— which has been shown to lower the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. Bananas also have carotenoids, which are especially good for our eyes.

Given the calories in bananas, many tend to shy away from this fruit. But they are highly nutritious, containing fiber for your bowel health, healthy fats, magnesium to fortify your bones and muscles, and antioxidants.

Together these two ingredients give your smoothie the nutritional punch your body needs.Plus there's no better use for "ripe or overripe bananas". And together you get the perfect balance of carbohydrates, healthy fat and protein.

To add more nutritional values, you can sprinkle chia seeds and cacao nibs on top.
