Protein Peanut Butter Banana Snack Smoothie Recipe!

Court Street Cooking Corner: Smoothie Time!

The 20-minute snack break between second and third block is always hard to handle for virtual students. There isn’t enough time to cook a nice lunch at home, but you can’t be hungry for the second half of the day. This smoothie is so easy to prepare and has been my go-to during my snack breaks. With about 25 grams of protein, it helps me stay full until lunch, and get a lot of good vitamins and nutrients into my body. 

  • Ingredients/Materials: 
  • Blender
  • Ice*
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/3 cup vanilla or plain Greek yogurt
