Banana, peanut butter and espresso smoothie

We like to refer to this smoothie as “The go-getter” – it is the perfect way to kick-start your day. We love the combination of banana and peanut butter and the added kick of the espresso makes it a great breakfast smoothie.

We like to use fat-free yoghurt as it’s not as thick as low-fat or double-cream. The runnier yoghurts give the right texture to a smoothie. If you want to turn this smoothie into a milkshake, simply substitute the yoghurt with vanilla ice cream.
