Do you ever say to yourself, “I love banana bread so much, I could just drink it?” <- said like Bobby’s mom from Bobby’s World.

I mean, if life were made out of banana bread, I think I’d have to go on a powerful search for Things to be Upset About. Because let’s face it: there will always be something I have to be upset about in order to maintain my off-kilter cosmic off-balance balance… but if life were made out of banana bread, it would be extremely, exceedingly, impossibly difficult to be upset.

I feel so strongly about this, my heart is palpitating irregularly in my chest. But maybe that’s just the banana bread smoothie coursing sugar insulin throughout my veins.

Back to my story.

This protein smoothie. If you prepare it as written, it yields you a whopping 22 grams of protein. If you add more chia seeds and/or more almond (or peanut) butter? More protein! This isn’t a low-sugar or low-calorie smoothie, but for those who like to begin the day with a filling smoothie, this recipe’s perfect for you. And for those of you who are looking for drinkable banana bread? Even more perfection.

You know what would make this smoothie even better? A slice of banana bread. Inside of it. Just food for thought.
Don’tcha knooooow.

I would think you could make it the night before, but I think it'll taste best fresh :)

I'm with you, banana bread is the shit! ;-) Funny enough, right before I read this post, I looked at my fruit basket & decided I was going to make banana bread today...I could also go for this smoothie right about now!

Mmmmmhmmmm! This is the perfect use for those bananas...I was seriously tempted to bake a batch of banana bread to enjoy alongside this smoothie but then the little voice in my head that tells me when I'm being a lunatic chimed in. There's no end to the obsession ;)
