Gluten-Free Banana Orange Smoothie with Peanut Butter

Whip up this smoothie for a fast, nutritious breakfast that is rich in calcium, protein, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin B6, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, folic acid, vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and probiotics. Peanuts are a significant source of resveratrol, a chemical studied for potential anti-aging effects and also associated with reduced cardiovascular disease and reduced cancer risk. Ounce for ounce, peanuts contain almost 30 times as much resveratrol as grapes, which often are touted as being one of the few good sources of the antioxidant.

Ingredients
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ¼ cup silken tofu
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup calcium fortified orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon rice protein
  • raw honey to taste, about a teaspoon

 

Equipment

A blender.

Process

Put all ingredients into a blender and liquefy.  Add some ice if you like it colder. Pour into tall glass to serve.
