The Vegan Elvis Smoothie
Well, minus the bread and deep frying. I’m not sure how to deep fry a smoothie, but I don’t think I’ll be trying that anytime soon. Anyway, I finally got a blender! I’d really been holding out for a Vitamix, but I finally had to admit that a $500 blender wasn’t in my immediate future. Instead, I settled on a nice, affordable KitchenAid blender with three speeds and a smoothie button. I didn’t have high hopes for my new blender because I was so prepared to be let now by it’s not a Vitamix-ness, but I was actually pleasantly surprised by how quickly and smoothly it made a perfect smoothie. Sure, it doesn’t make hot soup or instant ice cream, but for now I will settle for a darn good smoothie! Today’s smoothie is just a simple concoction combining my childhood favorites, peanut butter and banana. It makes enough for two vegan smoothies, but could easily be halved for a single serving.
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 2 large bananas
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed (optional)
- 1 tablespoon raw wheat germ (optional)
Add ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
