Honey-Roasted Peanut Banana Dinner Smoothie

I'm on my own for dinner tonight. The grad student husband is grading papers at Dunkin' Donuts before meeting a friend there for coffee. The two of them are having a guys night while I am having a ladies night later on this evening with a bunch of friends from my church that are throwing me a baby shower! I was going to make a banana peanut butter smoothie but then I thought of throwing honey-roasted peanuts in instead of peanut butter for more texture and fresher flavor. My smoothie which included: 1 banana, ice, vanilla, honey-roasted peanuts, and 2% milk was delicious.

Mocha Protein Power Shake

I asked Anthony what he wanted for dinner, pasta primavera or potato corn chowder. He said maybe something cool since he was really hot from walking home from grad school. I suggested a smoothie. He said "yeah, and then maybe we can have dinner later." I got the blender out, I poured leftover coffee in it, then I got the milk and chocolate syrup out of the fridge. I reached in the freezer for ice. Whoops, the ice trays had water in them. Plan A was to make a mocha frappe. I decided to change that to just a plain cold mocha. I blended one. Then I thought, hmm, it would be nice if this was thicker. I reached in the cabinet and pulled out the cashews. After integrating them into my mocha the result was nothing short of a mocha protein power shake!

Detox Smoothie

I was looking forward to eating healthy this morning. My plan was to make a peach pineapple smoothie but I decided to throw in carrots at the last minute. Great addition. My breakfast detox smoothie included carrots, pineapple, peaches, ice cubes, plain yogurt, and milk.
