Easy Breakfast: Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies

I'll be honest. I got up really early today, like 3 am. I woke up and didn't feel great. I stayed awake for a while and then fell asleep. Then, same thing happened at 5 am. 
So here I am, rushing for breakfast in a bit of a fog. 
Thankfully, there are good things that I can make for breakfast that are very easy and very nourishing. 
A few nights ago I made 3 quarts of beautiful yogurt. It was so thick! I was very pleased.
I also had some overripe bananas. 
Overripe bananas are wonderful. I use them in ALL sorts of ways.

So not really a recipe, but here's what I used to make a pitcher of peanut butter banana smoothies.
4-5 overripe bananas
1 cup yogurt
1/2-1 cup peanut butter (depending how peanutty you want this)
2-4 Tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
(you could also spice this if you like... adding cinnamon, nutmeg, etc... I didn't)
I poured everything in a pitcher and then added milk to make it smooth.
Add more milk for a thinner smoothie, less for thicker.
This is fairly thick. I would say I ended up using maybe 3 cups?!?! 
Something like that. 
Like I said, I didn't measure very well, I just added til it looked right.
The kids loved it. 
I felt good about breakfast. Sometimes you need something quick, easy and healthy! Especially if you don't keep cold cereals in your house... which we don't. 

This would be a great snack as well!
Hope you enjoy!!
