Elvis Morning Smoothy

Life has been so crazy and with the heat I needed a fun quick breakfast. Smoothies are something I have always had fun playing with but never have posted about.
The trick is to keep fruit frozen and be creative. Frozen bananas, berries, mango and melon work great. The frozen fruit allows you to make a cold drink with no ice. Using ice changes the consistency and melts quickly. Prepare fruit before freezing. Peel and slice mango, peel bananas and wrap in foil, wash berries etc.

Ingredients:
One cup almond milk (less if you want a thinker shake)
One frozen banana
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup
1 tsp Splenda or any sweetener (optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender. Start on a low setting until banana begins to break up and then turn to high for a minute or two. Pour into a nice tall glass and enjoy!!!
