We’ve been trying to get back to healthy eating lately, which means lots of smoothies in our house! I usually do the typical fruit smoothie, but when I saw this recipe for a chocolate banana pb smoothie, I knew I had to try it! It really tastes like a chocolate dessert. I love having something that tastes really good, that it makes you think it could be bad for you.
As I type this, it’s snowing outside. So, it’s a little bit tough to get into a smoothie mood. lol. Soon though! We have been having nice weather, April is always just weird in Minnesota. And annoying.
As the snow is melting, and the weather gets nicer, my allergies have been acting up. Well, I think I finally found the solution! Normally, I’m taking Zyrtec or one of those other OTC meds for allergies that never seem to work. Well, a few weeks ago I started using lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oils. I have had no allergy problems since. Seriously! It’s crazy! Anyways, one more healthy thing for us to do… I bet adding peppermint to this smoothie would taste great! I have got to try that next!
