Pretzels, peanut butter, and honey — these all evoke feelings of comfort and tasty snacking. Blend them together with banana and milk, and you have a pretty healthy, drinkable snack! Pretzels are a great low-fat treat and add a salty element to the sweet smoothie while honey, in addition to its sweet flavor, also lends antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to the mix. And of course, the delicious protein power of peanut butter and the nutrients from milk and banana round out this perfect smoothie.
Yield: 1 serving
1 cup crushed pretzels
½ frozen banana*
2 tablespoons The Bees Knees® peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup 2% milk (or whatever variety you prefer like almond, soy, etc.)
*I advise cutting a banana into pieces before freezing — 1 medium-large banana is about 10 pieces.
1. Place pretzels in a plastic bag and use a mallet or rolling pin to crush. Measure out 1 cup of the crushed pretzels and place in a blender.
2. Add frozen banana, peanut butter, honey, and milk to the pretzels. Cover with blender lid and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
