Nut Butter Banana Smoothie ~ Bliss

I am thinking about food...
I have been trying to get all the processed/chemical/etc crap out of my diet, which is no small feat. This has been an evolving process, and I now find that there are more and more people who want to know what is in what they eat. I have a few recipes that I really love, I thought I would post them here to share and as a way to start my first blog.

Sorry no pictures of my finished recipes yet, I will add them when I get my camera working again, or when I buy a new one...With all of the recipes I post, I use organic ingredients when available.

Nut Butter Banana Smoothie

1 tbs nut butter (I like almond, but any nut butter works)
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt (Use what you like, I love Stonyfield Farms, it is organic and made close to Maine. I choose plain to keep the sugar down, but vanilla works well too)
1 cup milk (soy or almond milk OK)
1 banana cut into large chunks (OHH yeah, even better, frozen banana...)
Cinnamon to taste

Blend all ingredients together. Eat. Yum.

I have an immersion blender that I love, just make sure you unplug it before you clean it out with your finger...
