Monday Munchies - Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

The weather here has been so warm the last couple of weeks, it has me in the mood for summer!  I have been seeing a lot of smoothie recipes on different food blogs I follow and with this warmer weather a smoothie for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even dessert sounds delicious!  Breakfast is my favorite time for smoothies, but a lot of times a couple of hours later I find myself hungry.  This recipe is one that caught my eye on Pinterest because I always have the ingredients on hand, and it incorporates some fiber and protein that help you stay satisfied until the next meal!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1/8 c. oats
1 T. peanut butter
1/2 c. milk (nutrition info was calculated using nonfat milk)
3 Ice cubes
1/2 packet of stevia (or whatever sweetener you want - I used Sweet Leaf brand, but keep in mind that the amount of sweetener you need will vary based on what type you are using)
1/2 t. vanilla

Put oats in blender and blend until powdery.  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until there are no chunks of ice or banana left.  Pour and enjoy!
