I’ve been quite the smoothie addict lately. With the abundance of fresh fruit available, it’s hard not to be.

I’m known for being over zealous at the farmer’s market. I tend to load up my market bag with every single fruit the vendors have to offer. A week later, the fruit is looking a little sad and I’m trying to figure out a way to use the fruit I so badly had to have before it goes to waste.

Smoothies are the perfect vessel for fresh or wilted fruit alike. I make a smoothie when I’m running late for work, craving a sweet snack, or to add a boost of protein before my morning trail ride through the woods.

This week, the #SundaySupper crew is partnering with AmFam to bring you healthy recipes to fuel you on the go.

This peanut butter banana smoothie has been my go-to smoothie for the last few weeks. Peanut butter and banana is the ultimate flavor combo, so it only made sense to swirl it together to create a frothy smoothie. It’s thick, filling, and tastes like dessert.

I used creamy peanut butter and Greek yogurt to give this smoothie a boost of protein. The added protein will keep you full and energized.

I always use frozen bananas in my smoothies. They create a thick, creamy smoothie without diluting flavor. One banana is packed with 422 mg of potassium.

I also added a tablespoon of old-fashioned oats and a teaspoon of flaxseed meal. Both ingredients add a healthy dose of fiber, while the flaxseed meal adds essential omega-3 fatty acids.

What you’re getting is a healthy, protein and fiber packed smoothie that will fuel your workouts or act as a quick meal when you’re too busy to cook.
