Ingredients

2 handfuls Strawberries
2 frozen* Bananas
2 cups Milk
1 heaped tablespoon natural** Peanut Butter
2 heaped teaspoons Maca Powder (optional)

Option: add some rolled oats (soaked in milk overnight if you want it smoother) for bulk.

* Peel and slice the bananas, place in a snalopck bag and freeze for at least a few hours. I like to freeze mine overnight for the morning, or ideally I have a bunch frozen at all times.
** Natural nut butters have no added ingredients, just nuts (and sometimes salt). Look for them in the health food shops or aisles of supermarkets, or increasingly next to the more processed peanut butter.

Instructions

1. Puree the strawberries (tops removed) in a food processor until smooth. Pour into the bottom of two glasses.
2. Puree the rest of the ingredients until smooth. The frozen banana will make a really thick smoothie, which I adore, however if you like a thinner smoothie simply add more milk.
3. Using the back of a wide spoon placed in the glass over the strawberry layer, gently pour the banana smoothie into the glass (thic should keep the layers separate, which is really just for show).
