Blueberry Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie


It's chilly in the morning when I leave for work at 6:30am, but who am I kidding...I live in Phoenix. When I say it's chilly in the morning, I mean it's 65 degrees and the sun in already rising. So, I don't feel bad sipping on a cold smoothie on my way in to the office. I also don't feel bad eating what tastes like a freshly baked blueberry pie for breakfast. This smoothie of full of healthy fats from homemade peanut butter, and antioxidants from the blueberries. This, my friends, is a deadly combination. Once I was done, I was craving another. Luckily I was far from a blender, but you better believe I will be making this again!
