Banana Butterscotch Smoothie

Standard

Good morning, all!

I’m sitting here drinking my creamy, sweet coffee and catching up on things. Probably my favorite time of day.

I tend to start and end the day in the same fashion, with a touch of sweetness. In the morning, coffee. And the evening, a smoothie.   And let me tell ya, I made a good one last night. It was D approved, and most importantly, it wasn’t super unhealthy.

I’m not gonna sit here and tell you it’s full of super-fruit and antioxidants. But a small one won’t make your pants tight either. Winner!

Banana Butterscotch Smoothie

Start with these guys. On the back right, in the baggie, there’s sliced, frozen bananas.

Put 2 cups of ice in the blender, followed by about 1 cup frozen bananas, and 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt.

Then add 2 TBSP of instant, sugar/fat free butterscotch pudding powder. Or not. Use the real if you want. I had this on hand.

Then add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and cinnamon to your liking.

Add 1 1/2 cups of almond milk. Or skim milk. Whatever you have on hand.

Give it a whirl.

The next step is very important. You have to put it in cute glasses like these.

Topping it with a little whipped cream and some cinnamon is optional, of course.

We have our third beer league softball game tonight. My goal is to stop every ball and not get a black eye. D’s goal is to hit a “dinger.” For all practical purposes, a “dinger” is the same as a home run.

Hopefully we’re both successful. Happy Thursday!
