Bananas and peanut butter are a match made in heaven. If you're looking for a way to really fill yourself up at the start of your day, this creamy and dreamy peanut butter banana smoothie from PumpUp member @fridaw will definitely do the trick. It has a bit of ginger to kick your body into high gear for the rest of the day. Ginger is an herb that has several anti-inflammatory compounds and it's often used to treat common illnesses. What's more, the fibre and protein in this recipe will stave off cravings for the rest of your morning. Be sure to use natural peanut butter, as processed varieties tend to contain a lot of added sugar, salt, and preservatives. Feel free to use the milk of your choice when you're preparing this smoothie. If you're vegan or lactose intolerant, opt for almond milk or rice milk instead.
