Peanut Butter, Banana & Oatmeal Smoothie

134

This is a great, healthy meal for your busy mornings. Make one of these smoothies in the morning to get you going! I use my magic bullet and it is ready in under two minutes- that includes the prep time!

2
1 scoop of peanut butter (Use the all-natural kind for a healthier option. We actually prefer this in our house for the taste.). I just use a regular spoon and scoop some out.
2- Skim Milk. I fill up the magic bullet to about the half-way mark. This is about 1 cup of milk
3- One banana (break it into thirds to make it fit)
4- Oatmeal. Either use one package of original uncooked oatmeal or about 1/4 cup of uncooked Rolled Oats.
5- About 1/4 cup of crushed ice.
OPTIONAL: t. of wheatgerm or flaxseed
Blend it all in a blender or magic bullet. You are ready to head out for your busy day!

Stewed Okra and Tomatoes is a classic Southern dish! Flavored with bacon, onion, garlic and cider vinegar, you know these vegetables are bound to be good. Serve garden fresh okra and tomatoes during the summer months, or use canned and frozen ingredients in the off-season. Paired with a side of cornbread, this is a simple and affordable dish to enjoy year-round!
