Bananas make very good smoothies – add them to almost anything else and they will reward you with a sweet creaminess. They have a special affinity with nuts – so the peanut butter here is gorgeous.
2 large, ripe bananas
10 ice cubes
1 tablespoon sugar or sugar syrup, or to taste
1/2 cup milk, yogurt or light cream
4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
Peel and cut the banana into chunks. Put them in a blender with the ice cubes, sugar, milk, yogurt or cream and peanut butter. Whizz to a puree.
Thin with a little more milk or water if too thick, then serve immediately.
Yield: serves 1-2
