This post is sponsored by Horizon Organic! All opinions are my own. I used their Organic Whole Milk with DHA Omega-3 for this Creamy Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. Be sure to follow them on Instagram for other great dairy snacks!

School is out (so I hear) and summer is on. I’m already imagining next year when our oldest is in actual school and the summers will become a whirlwind of camps, play dates, and rushed impromptu childcare.

One thing I’ve learned though is that if I can get my kids some high protein snacks throughout the busy days, everything just seems to go smoother. They are less fussy and everybody has more fun.

I’m partnering with Horizon Organic this year to bring you some really delicious recipes. I love that some of their dairy comes from 600+ organic family farms all across the U.S. and they never use any toxic persistent pesticides, antibiotics, or added hormones on their cows, or GMOs in any of their dairy products.

So yea. They produce amazing milk with DHA Omega-3 and I wanted to highlight it in this quick and easy summer smart snack! SMOOTHIES!

My kids love smoothies and this one goes down really easy! Peanut butter and banana?! Yes please. I used Horizon Organic DHA Whole Milk for my version. Added DHA is a great nutrient that supports brain and eye health and I like the creaminess of whole milk in the smoothie. If you wanted slightly less fat or calories, you could make it with their reduced fat milk or if you want to win extra points from your kiddos, try it with their chocolate milk. WHOA.

Between the milk and the peanut butter, one small serving of this smoothie has a whopping 12 grams of protein (there are 8 grams of protein per serving of Horizon Organic DHA Whole Milk)! It’s a great way to fuel up and cool down during these hot summer months!

Creamy PB Banana Smoothie!

This recipe is pretty easy and it pays big time dividends. I love it so much!

If you have a good blender, you can use chunky peanut butter. It’ll all get blended together, but smooth peanut butter is best.

The basics.

I have one trick and one secret ingredient to make this smoothie really special.

First, add some ice to it. It’s a really rich smoothie and the ice helps chill it down, but also lightens it up a bit.

Milk goes in!

The secret ingredient is chia seeds! You could leave them out and not affect the flavor much, but just a tablespoon of chia seeds adds a bunch of fiber and even more protein to the smoothie. They are SO good for you!

Blend this all together and you are in business!
