Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen banana slices (approximately 2 medium bananas)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1-1/2 cups vanilla soy milk
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. honey

Steps to Make It

  1. Place frozen banana slices, frozen pineapple chunks and ice in the bottom of a blender or the work bowl of a food processor, fitted with a metal blade.

  2. Pour soy milk over fruit.

  3. Add remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth. If the blender doesn't seem to be crushing the pineapple chunks well enough, stop it. Push the pineapple down with a spoon. Restart.

  4. Garnish with chopped roasted peanuts, if desired, and serve immediately.
