  • “Anu!!!!! This is absolutely yummy! I enjoyed it, really you know what, you are a genius!! I really admire you for the wonderful recipes you post and especialy, lately, I’ve been making your smoothies and sandwiches, delicious! Absolutely delightful recipes you got!! This was a really good smoothie, and considering the summer months to come in which I’m going to be making this time and again, I wish I could bring the whole sky down for you:) 5 stars are just too less for this one.Thank You, Anu! You have made my day!!”

  • “Anu, this one is a winner!I first made it last Friday, and it was really good.This morning a light bulb went off over my head, and instead of my plain soy milk I used chocolate-flavored soy milk.The peanut butter/chocolate/banana combination is out of this world!This is going to become a habit, thanks!”

  • “I made this today and if you like things with bananas, this is for you! I was glad that this was not a drink that only filled the glass halfway-it filled it almost to the top! I love being able to call that much “1 serving”! Also, I didn’t mix mine as much, so it was like a malt-type texture- really good- and very filling. Next time I think that I am going to add a little more peanut butter and maybe even some chocolate flavor…or vanilla…or some strawberries! The possibilities are endless!”

  • “Very Good – easy to make and delious”

  • “Well, I liked this smoothie a lot!I did use skim milk instead of soy milk.It turned out great, and we loved the flavor.I will definately make it again.Thanks for sharing this recipe, Anu!”

  • “Delicious, low calorie, refreshing way to start the day. Just the right amount of sweetness and flavor for me. Thanks for posting the recipe!”

  • “This is my FAVORITE breakfast!”

  • “I made this a few minutes ago and it was very good. I actually made it with water instead of milk because I had ran out and I didn’t feel like going to the store. Thanks for sharing.”

  • “Not bad. I felt like it needed a little something else… I liked it at first, but it was a little hard to finish for some reason. I can’t really put my finger on what the problem was…”

  • “This was yummy! Thanks for the recipe. ( I had to double the recipe because we ran out of it so quick! ) [:”

  • “Tasty.I added a little wheat germ for some fiber. Next time maybe I’d do half a banana and add some vanilla yogurt.”

  • “This was great! Quick, healthy, and really tasty. My kids loved it and I will be putting it on our regular breakfast and snack rotation. Thanks for posting!”

  • “Believe it or not, this was the first time I made a homemade smoothie! I love them, but always buy them from a mall! (and they’re SO expensive).My parents recently purchased a mini-like blender so I borrowed it to make this… *drools*I would totally pay for this in a mall.In fact, it was better… and I know exactly what was in it (FRESH ingredients). The only thing I changed was my banana wasn’t frozen as I made this out of the blue and didn’t plan for it.Next time I’ll freeze it!! The amount of peanut butter was perfect – a hint of peanut butter, while not overwhelming the banana.It was so refreshing and smooth. And, VERY healthy.I’m going to make one again VERY soon!”

  • “Pretty good — I think the problem for me was that I added some more water because I wanted to follow the recipe in the order it was listed, so I had to use some liquid to crush the ice other than the milk (I used soy)… it would have been better, I think, had I just dumped everything in at once! Will try that next time. Thanks for posting!”

  • “I had this yesterday for breakfast. This was great! I did follow kimngabe mommy’s version. I will be making this often, thanks so much for posting!”

  • “Make sure the ice is crushed. Otherwise, you’ll have three blocks of ice in your smoothie.”

  • “This is almost like the smoothie I made everyday when I had my old blender. Except I used 2 tablespoons of peanut butter for extra protein and also added between 1/4 and 1/3 cup quick oats for fiber, along with 1 cup skim milk instead of 1/2 cup for added calcium.”

  • “This is great for a morning pick-me-up.Easy to make.I tweaked by using 2% low fat milk and 2 teaspoons peanut butter.I also used crushed ice instead of cubed, for easier blending.Thanks for posting this recipe!”

  • “Ohhhhh…now I see why the smoothie I made tasted a little funny! I added WAY too much peanut butter!!I tried to make this for my husband and I while half asleep this morning (which means I doubled the recipe.)Instead of two tsp. pb I put two tablespoons!!! It tasted awful weird!?But then again it wasn’t all that but ethier..the consistency was nice and creamy and smooth.My husband didn’t like it at all but I drank it and ended up sort of liking it.I think I’ll try and make this again, but this time making sure I read the recipe correctly!”
