Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

If anything is going to get me through this heat wave, it’s a cold peanut butter banana smoothie. Hand me one of these suckers and plop me in front of the AC, and everything will be okay. My husband and I were out on a date by the water yesterday, and on the way home we had to promise that we wouldn’t turn on each other when we walked into our steaming hot house. (We didn’t turn the AC on before we left. 😢) We managed to keep it together but, I need to get some central air up in here. 

Did you know that it just came out in the news that bananas might become extinct?! These guys can explain it better than I can, all I know is that I am going to have to keep freezing bananas like a wild woman. (Sliced up frozen bananas make the best summer snack, as do these smoothies.)
