Recommendations/Things I did different
I have made this smoothie multiple time now. Each time I did things a little differently.
- I would not recommend using chunky peanut butter. If you use chunky peanut butter, use half the amount that she suggests because when when the chunks are blended it turned into more peanut butter.
- If you have salt in your peanut butter, do not put more salt
- You do not need to use frozen bananas, but makes its cold rather than warm. I don’t usually freeze bananas and also don’t plan out my smoothies, so I make it with a regular banana.
- Peel and cut banana before freezing it. I missed that step in the recipe and it was impossible to peel the banana when frozen
- I use honey as my natural sugar, super good. Almost like a honey roasted peanut.
I would say the average cost for making this is $5.
This recipe says that there are two servings. I do not believe this right. It fills up a normal 16 oz drinking glass. To me, that is the perfect smoothie amount.
The score is on a scale 1 to 10, 10 being I could eat this everyday for the rest of my life. I base the score off of easiness to make, taste, texture and cost.
This smoothie is so thick and creamy. It is a great start to my morning and keep me full for hours. I am a sucker for anything peanut butter and banana.
Final score will be a 8.9/10
I will also give it rating of beginner, moderate, advanced, or expert. This is based off my cooking skills. Beginner is fast and easy. Moderate is take a little attention. Advanced is attention to detail and takes some skills. Expert is cooking skills are needed and easy to ruin recipe.
This recipe is beginner. Making smoothies are easy and this recipe is laid out perfectly.
I could have this smoothie all day, every day. I am so picky when it comes to the texture of my smoothie and this recipe hits it perfectly. I have this smoothie once a week and its amazing!
