Here is how to have dessert for dinner—and not feel guilty about it. Make a creamy, sweet, and satisfying shake with a banana, Greek yogurt, milk, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, cinnamon, and honey. The milk and yogurt provide a potent one-two punch of carbs and lean protein. With bananas, you get a healthy complex carb that’s high in potassium, magnesium, and electrolytes, all essential for muscle function. Blending in some peanut butter gives your shake extra thickness and flavor and a boost of protein along with healthy fat.
