I’ve been a self-proclaimed Elvis girl from the moment I finished watching Girls! Girls! Girls!
And my love for the King of Rock and Roll was only cemented with Viva Las Vegas. And Follow That Dream. And Blue Hawaii. And The Trouble With Girls …
… and let’s not forget Fun in Acapulco!
The hair flipping. The cropped tops. The cropped pants. The headbands and high ponytails and teased hair up to there …
I was sold!
I remember watching these movies on superstation WGN-TV with my father on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Or catching them on an ABC after school movie week devoted to Elvis. I would race home and get my homework done ASAP so I could tuck in and enjoy …
But my true and deep love of Elvis was cemented when I found out he loved a peanut butter and banana sandwich.
Seriously, a peanut butter and banana sandwich is my ultimate comfort food. My go to in good times …
and bad …
I could eat them every day. If only …
But when I found out Elvis was a peanut butter and banana sandwich fan, I knew then it was written in the stars …
So when I was thinking about possible smoothie recipe ideas using almond milk, it should be no surprise that my mind turned to peanut butter and bananas …
… and Elvis!

Oops…mistake, I already get you by email. Love your posts and you fab sense of humor.
I entered today already for the give away, would sure love to win any of it. Love ball jars best. Great give away. I was looking at this recipe and had to go eat some peanut butter out of jar with plastic spoon. Oh yum. Is this smoothie fattening? Looks and sounds so good. Will have to get some of that almond milk and bananas. Would be good mid afternoon snack. Happy days
