the dessert that eats like a meal

last week i told you to keep overripe bananas in your freezer for banana bread. this week, i will enlighten you with a second use for them:

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE BANANA SMOOTHIES

into your blender, toss one frozen banana cut in two and the peel cut off
one giantly heaping tablespoon of chunky all natural peanut butter
about a cup or two of chocolate soy milk
one scant tablespoon of vanilla frozen yogurt

blend.

enjoy sipping and/or with a spoon.

i often get home late, around 9 pm, not having eaten any dinner. this shake is perfect because it crams dinner and dessert into one quick meal.

There once was a vegetarian cafe in Virginia (believe it or not) that had a smoothie called a Fusion which was similar but less dessert-y, more meal-y:

one-two bananas (cut or not, still works with a blender)
big ol' dollop of chunky all-natural peanut butter
vanilla soy or rice milk (about "this" much)
slightly less than a big ol' dollop of vanilla frozen yogurt
1/4 c of granola (sans raisins).
ice (optional, but i find it helps it go down more easily)

the granola (with the peanut butter) ads a nice texture, and the whole thing fills you up like a pot roast. one blender-full is something like four full meals.
