Dietitian's Tip: 

When choosing what peanut butter to use, pick one that’s lower in sodium and sugar content. To increase your daily servings of vegetables, try adding a handful of spinach. It does little to the taste of the smoothie and increases its vitamin and mineral content. 


• 1 cup fat free or low fat milk
• ½ cup frozen banana slices
• 1 tablespoon peanut butter
• ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
• ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
• Sweet cocoa powder optional 


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder, if desired.
