A Great Combination for A Great Flavored Smoothie: Frozen Banana & Peanut Butter

Today I received two items I ordered from GNC: Flax Seed Oil capsules and Power PB - all natural peanut butter blended with flax seed oil, fiber and essential fat.

The recipe I created using these two products came out pretty good if I do say so myself.  

If you like the combined flavors of banana and peanut butter, I'll bet you'll enjoy this.  If you do make it, let me know what you think. Feel free to experiment by adding your own ingredients; chocolate syrup, hazelnut spread, honey, etc. 

 Frozen Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

1 GNC Softgel Flax Seed Oil Capsule 
1 cup ice cubes
1 Frozen banana chopped
1/4 cup from GNC Power PB  
3/4 to 1 c milk (whatever % you prefer)
5 - 6 drops liquid Vanilla Cream Stevia

Express the Flaxseed oil from the capsule into the blender. You can do this with by pricking the capsule with the tip of a knife or clean common pin. Add ingredients in the order given to a blender with an ice crush and liquefy settings.  Blend to the consistency you desire by adding more or less milk, and enjoy! 

Final Product = Deliciously rich & thick with
great Peanut Butter & Banana Flavor


Creamy Consistency. Add less milk at first,
thin it out to your desired consistency.
