Drink your greens

Posted on

If you’re reading this, you need to make this smoothie. I’ve made it three times already this week. It’s delicious, tastes like a peanut butter banana milkshake! Okay, maybe not rich and decadent like a real shake, but pretty darn good.

The recipe for a Green Monster Spinach Smoothie was found on Iowa Girl Eats. Her blog is one of my favorites for easy, healthy ideas. Check out her pictures, far better than this snapshot with my iPhone.

I promise you only taste peanut butter banana goodness, not a hint of spinach.

What you need:

1 frozen sliced banana (buy a bunch of bananas, slice them and toss them in a freezer bag, don’t try to slice a frozen banana)

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1/2 cup fat free vanilla greek yogurt (I used a small container of the Trader Joe’s brand)

1 cup milk (she used vanilla almond milk, which probably tastes great in the recipe but I only have “regular” milk)

4 cups baby spinach (I added two large handfuls)


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.


Thanks for stopping by!
