I occasionally make fruity smoothies, but most of the time I do some variation of this one. It’s sooo yummy and helps with my ice cream cravings. Ice cream is probably my all-time favorite food, but I know that this is healthier and just about as good. I like to make it thick so it’s almost the consistency of soft serve ice cream. I don’t have exact ingredients, if you like it more peanut buttery, add more peanut butter. If you like it thicker add more frozen bananas, thinner, add more milk. I’ve done it with out the chocolate powder and chocolate chips. I’ve even thrown in raw spinach and leftover oatmeal.

  • Frozen bananas-This is one of many great ways to use up those browning bananas!
  • Milk
  • Peanut butter – I’ve done it both with natural peanut butter with no added sugar and with the regular peanut butter.
  • Cocoa powder – This is optional.
  • Chocolate or carob chips – Also optional.

Mix it the ingredients (except for the chocolate  chips) in your blender, then top with the chips and enjoy!!!



If you missed it, I already shared one way to use up leftover already cooked oatmeal, blueberry or chocolate chip oatmeal bread, but if you don’t want to bake, or you’re looking for something with no added sugar, then here’s another recipe!


  • 1/3 cup leftover already cooked oatmeal
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 2 chopped frozen bananas
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate baking powder (unsweet)

Whirl in the blender and enjoy! I like my smoothies thick, then I pretend I’m eating ice-cream! :D

Have leftover smoothie? Freeze it in popsicle molds for a great treat later!
