Green Monkey Smoothie // Peanut Butter, Banana, Spinach
If you haven't caught on by now, let me fill you in... I love green juices and smoothies! Not only are they delicious but they're such an easy way to incorporate more veggies into your day. What I also love about green juices and smoothies, is that the possibilities are endless and I love coming up with new recipes and of course, sharing them with you (case in point).
Today's recipe is so yummy, I can't believe I haven't shared it with you yet. I actually made this almost a month ago, but for one reason or another the pictures got lost in the shuffle. Nevertheless, I'm happy to be able to share them with you today.
Inspired by a Funky Monkey Smoothie, I had while in Nicaragua last year, but with spinach. I also used PB2, powered peanut butter, to still get the good fats but save on some of the calories. Give it a try, then let me know what you think.
- 3 handfuls of spinach
- 1 banana, sliced
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon PB2, powered peanut butter (real peanut butter works too)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Add spinach to food processor or blender; blend
- Add almond milk, powered peanut butter, cinnamon, and banana; blend
- Add additional milk if necessary, to get the consistency you prefer; blend
- Serve cold and enjoy!
