Almond Butter Banana Smoothie - The Secret Recipe Club (#SRC)


I know breakfast is an important way to start my day, but life with a two young children is always chaotic! Some days it is harder than others to grab my favorite breakfast scramble or hot cereal. And then some days I really want to just have a cold, tall smoothie.

 Though I am not part of the weight loss group, I am always up for a good smoothie. This recipe in particular stood out because I enjoy adding whole oats to my breakfast and have never been one to pass up licking the peanut butter spoon... or as my new love is, almond butter. So, I am happy to present Angie's Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie recipe, with an almond substitution,  for this month's Secret Recipe Club installment.
