Peanut Butter & Apple Smoothie

Do you love dipping crisp slices of apple into creamy delicious peanut butter? I sure do. It is one of my favorite snacks. The flavor combination is wonderful and comforting. My boys were recently on a smoothies-for-breakfast kick and it got me thinking about making up some new smoothie flavors to try. My boys generally throw some 'must get used up because they are almost too ripe' bananas and strawberries into ziploc bags and toss the bags in the freezer. Then they don't need ice to make the smoothies...just milk, or yogurt, or cottage cheese(never used cottage cheese in a smoothie???? Oh dear you really MUST try it!) They might add peanut butter, or honey, or whatever might sound good at the time.  But I decided to try to make a smoothie that tasted like that yummy apple and peanut butter treat....and here is what I came up with.........

Peanut Butter & Apple Smoothie

In a blender combine:
1 apple (your favorite) peeled, cored and diced
3 1/2 tbl of creamy peanut butter (or any nut or seed butter you prefer)
1 2/3 cups ice cold milk
1/4 cup cottage cheese
honey to taste

Blend very well and serve in a tall glass...yummmmy!  Makes a great breakfast too!
