Peanut Butter Banana Shake with Almond Milk

Banana shakes were one of my favorite snacks growing up, but at the top of my list was and still is fried bananas, oh my goodness, it is delicious. I will have to make you some really soon.

If you had to walk into a Brazilian supermarket you would be surprised to learn how many varieties of bananas are there. During one of our trips to Brazil my husband Travis was amazed to know that there is a type of banana that tastes just like an apple, we called it “Banana Maçã”.

Brazil is the number two producer of bananas and I just recently learned that bananas are one of the most widely consumed foods. Cheers to bananas!

Here are the reasons I think bananas rock! They are naturally packaged, they are a great “to go” snack, high in potassium, affordable, sweet, you can freeze, fry, boil, bake, and cook them… or you name it, and let us not forget the use of the banana peel. Many times I saw my grandmother saving it. They were food for her violets, and she had the most beautiful violets ever!

With my two growing children constantly hungry, I decided to make shakes and smoothies more often over the summer. A friend of mine told me that her kids liked peanut butter in their banana shakes, so a few months ago I started to add peanut butter for protein, and it was tested and approved. We love it! I find myself having this shake sometimes for breakfast, and it is very satisfying.
