Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Growing up, summer meant playing outside, swimming, napping, friends, family, parties, cookouts, popsicles, and lots and lots of ICE CREAM.  There are few things I loved more than ice cream.  When I discovered that white sugar was not good for my stomach, ice cream was one of the hardest things to let go.  And, to be honest, I really kept eating it UNTIL I learned to make good SMOOTHIES.  Now, I can honestly say, I prefer a good smoothie to ice cream.  I believe it tastes just as good AND it doesn’t upset my stomach like my high-fat, sugar-laden former love.  So, today I want to share with you one of our family’s favorite smoothies, which we affectionately call the “Chunky Monkey” (aka Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie).
