It's that time of the month again....time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge, hosted by Tina at Moms Crazy Cooking. This month's challenge was fruit smoothies. Unfortunately, I don't like smoothies. I'm not a big yogurt drinker to begin with, and then mixing it with stuff and drinking it is just not appealing to me. My kids however, love smoothies! I don't think I've ever made them a smoothie before now, although I don't know why.....I discovered how easy they are to make! I have been a big fan of the Dole Smoothie Shakers. You just add fruit juice and shake! The kids like them.....but I can't tell you how they rate on the store-bought smoothie scale! When I was looking for smoothie recipes this one caught my eye. Peanut butter and bananas are staples in our household. I only had crunchy peanut butter which I used in the smoothie and I shouldn't have. The peanut chunks ruined the smoothness of the smoothie. I had a taste of the smoothie and it didn't make me a fan of them. My son downed his but my daughter didn't like hers. I'm glad that I was finally able to make my first smoothie. However, I won't be making this one again.

1 tablespoon honey, more or less to taste
1 cup ice cubes, more or less, depending on how thick like smoothies
Pour all of the ingredients in a blender, then blend until smooth. Add more honey if you want it slightly sweeter, more ice if you want it a little thinner.
