Banana-Peanut Butter Smoothie

I was tired of my normal yogurt and berry smoothie and I saw the most amazing looking one on Pinterest. It ooked yummy and of course it a Martha Stewart recipe! Even better! So I looked around for another one because right now I don't have the oats other than my oatmeal. Then I found a Banana-Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe! Doesn't it look yummy?

Banana-Peanut Butter Smoothie

1 ripe banana
1 cup fat free milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup ice
I used 2 bananas and Truvia no calorie sweetener because I had no honey. 
Add everything and blend smooth!
Makes 2.

Oh goodness was it delicious. Hubby even liked it.

Only 9 points plus per servings.

New to Blogging but not to Crafting and DIY-ing!

Hey! I'm Robyn, I have fallen in love with doing crafts and painting furniture so i am here to show my ideas off as well as my inspirations. So I’ve decided to start blogging about my latest crafts and such. I’ve always been about reusing things around the house is different ways and now its become an obsession. My boyfriend’s mom is very green and it’s inspired me to start blogging to show people easy ways to be green, crafty and still be young. I’m 19 going on 20 so i wont be showing you how to get the last drop of dental adhesive out of the tube or how to make that walker more trendy (well, maybe someday!). Hope you enjoy!
