Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie {CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE}

CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE #10 - Fruit Smoothies
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie
Each month I get so excited about making my recipe and seeing all of the other blogger recipes. It's so cool to all come together and create a recipe that's alike and yet so different. I have made so many recipes from the other challengers and it's so much fun meeting other bloggers, talking with and getting to know one another through cooking, baking and creating.

Here it goes, challenge #10. This month we are makng FRUIT SMOOTHIES, it's summer time, the farmers market had a WONDERFUL selection, that I am sure alot of you are using, I can't wait to start visiting my farmers market every Sunday (again)

I was in the middle of making a mountain of things for this weekends Graduation Celebration and then I remembered OH YEAH..... my smoothie recipe. If the HOST forgets, oh no, what would we do then. Have no fear, I've pulled out a recipe at 11 pm the night before on another challenge I forgot, so I know I can do anything. Plus I still had 6 days left, no worries. I am just like ALL of you. Kids, Family, Life and Sleep get in the way sometimes.

I did however already make two or three other smoothies, but the recipes weren't quite up to this challenge so I continued on and when I saw this Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie I knew that was it. (and I had over-rip bananas on the counter that were calling to be made into something). I made it, my adopted son (ie: one of my twins best friends) drank the whole thing and said it was delicious. We all tasted it, but he wanted it so we let him have it. I found this smoothie recipe over at This Chick Cooks.

  13. I found your blog through another cooking blog I follow... I just came across this recipe on This Chick Cooks blog earlier this week and made these for my kids and daycare kids on Tuesday - LOVED IT! I've never linked up with another blog, but I love the idea of your Crazy Cooking Challenge and think I might try it! I see Fried Chicken is next months challenge...which I have little experience with - but maybe that is a good thing; a real challenge!
