BREAKFAST FOR THE PICKY EATER -- PEANUT BUTTER SMOOTHIE RECIPE

When The Professor was little I was convinced he'd die of malnutrition.  My husband told me he just had the normal rounded toddler stomach, but I was convinced he had a distended tummy from malnutrition.  Yeah, I was one of those kinds of mothers.  He was a terrible eater, though.  While the 12-year-old Professor isn't exactly a health food addict, he does at least eat now.  Nonetheless, he continues to have the same breakfast that he has slurped down for the last ten years.  The Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie saved his life...or at least got some much-needed vitamins in him.  In one glass he gets a huge chunk of calcium, protein, and even a fresh fruit.  It's a great way to start the day (even if he ends the day with BBQ chips).


PEANUT BUTTER SMOOTHIE

1 cup low-fat milk
1/3 cup dry milk
1/2 large banana
1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
Optional:  1-2 teaspoons of Udo's Oil (great for getting essential fatty acids in there)

Pour all ingredients in blender and whip until smooth.  Fast, easy, tasty, and healthy!  And even a sleep-deprived 12 year old boy can get it down and still catch the bus on time.

Wait until the teen years and watch out things will really change for the better or maybe not.
