It’s time for the Peanut Butter Bash! This time our ingredients were Peanut Butter and Quinoa, which is a great motivator for a healthy treat. I came up with a Healthy Peanut Butter Milkshake. It’s gluten free, and if you use almond or cashew milk instead of the whipping cream mentioned in my recipe, you can make it totally vegan.
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup quinoa, cooked
- 1/4 cup whipping cream (or almond or cashew milk)
- a dash of cinnamon
- Optional: whipped cream and mini chocolate chips for topping)
- Peel the bananas before putting them in the freezer. Freeze for about 2 hours.
- Add all the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
- Serve and enjoy!
This milkshake doesn’t use ice cream. Instead one of my secret ingredients is frozen bananas! Got bananas that are about to go bad? Peel them, put them in a ziplock bag, and just pop them in the freezer for a couple of hours. Then they’re ready! Frozen bananas made this shake taste creamy, thick, and delicious!
My second secret ingredient? Quinoa! It’s great to add to smoothies and shakes, and your kids will never know! It’s so versatile and can be served both hot and cold. It’s packed with 8 g of protein and 6 g of fiber per cup when cooked. It’s also a good source of iron! It’s great addition for a protein packed shake.
I buy these ready cooked quinoa cups for my husband’s lunch. Each one has 1 cup of quinoa, so I keep one in the fridge and just dole it out a 1/4 cup at a time for these shakes.
My kids devour these milkshakes every time I make them. It’s great for an after school snack to keep them from grazing until dinner, and it’s great for on the go, too.
