a lovely living

As some of you know, my husband works from home. There are pros (he’s there to help me bring in the groceries and I have the freedom to run quick errands while the girls nap) and cons (he’s home for three meals a day and I need to keep the kids at a decent decibel level throughout the day), but overall I do enjoy having him home. One of my favorite pro’s is that he’s always willing to whip me up a smoothie for lunch whenever needed…or um, wanted ;) He has a knack for playing with recipes and adapting them to our taste. I often have one for lunch and they keep me full all afternoon, which a typical lunch doesn’t usually do.¬†Today I wanted to share¬†one of my favorite smoothies, adapted from this recipe.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie:


6-8 ice cubes
1 C milk (or almond milk)
1/2 C greek yogurt
1 banana
1 scoop protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp cocoa powder
Sprinkle of cinnamon


Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve over ice if desired.
