Hi friends! I have a quick and easy breakfast smoothie recipe to share today that's perfect for both kids and adults. So, remember when I told you about our new blender? Well, that baby is working overtime right now, and we're having tons of fun trying out different fruity combinations.
The kids have been after me to make smoothies for breakfast, but I wanted a recipe that contained protein and wouldn't take a lot of time to prepare. Have I mentioned I'm not a morning person? So, we did some experimenting and came up with this protein-packed Funky Monkey Breakfast Smoothie.
My sweet middle child absolutely loves peanut butter, and she would honestly survive on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches if I let her. She prefers strawberry jelly, but sometimes she likes honey on the peanut butter instead. She also adores bananas, and on the weekends, she'll sometimes add a banana to her sandwich.
So when I was making this smoothie, it occurred to me that it has all of her favorite foods. And when she was a baby, that little monkey tried to climb everything she could, so naturally, we had to name this breakfast smoothie the Funky Monkey.
She hates the name, but she does love the smoothie!
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 pound of strawberries, washed and cut up
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 ½ cups milk (We use 2 percent)
- ½ teaspoon honey

Add the strawberries to the blender, and then add the bananas.
