{Pregnancy Smoothie}

I have always loved a good smoothie, but they are even more satisfying to me during this pregnancy. I  often find myself craving a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, and rather than give in to the unhealthy options, I just whip up this smoothie.  It is so refreshing, and it always satisfies my appetite and keeps me full for quite awhile.

Although I have altered mine a bit, I first got this idea from Eat, Live, Run.  She always has great recipes, and I have really enjoyed her pregnancy posts.

Although I call this my "Pregnancy Smoothie," of course it's perfect for anyone.  It's such a healthy treat, and it's full of nutritious ingredients…Great for Moms-to-Be and everyone else out there trying to add healthy snacks to their diet! :)

Ingredients:
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 raw medjool date
  • A dash of cinnamon
** I add a few ice cubes to mine to increase the thickness, and I occasionally toss in a couple frozen strawberries.

Directions:

Place all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.  Enjoy!!

On a side note, this smoothie is also Kate-approved, so it must be good! ;)
