I hate to sound cliché but I really, really, want to start eating better. I know, I know, me and half of the country, right? It isn’t that I really eat that bad, I mean I do get the majority of my recipes from Cooking Light magazine after all, but my problem is two-fold: I don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables and I have no concept of portion control! Smoothies are a great way to get those much needed servings of fruit and vegetables that most of us don’t get and also make for a filling, delicious breakfast.
This Green Monster Spinach Smoothie may not look appetizing to some of you but don’t be intimidated by it’s bright green color. Yes, it’s a spinach smoothie but if it weren’t for the color, you would never know by the taste. This smoothie has milk, vanilla yogurt, banana, and peanut butter and tastes like a peanut butter-banana milkshake. Since spinach is nutritious and so, so, so good for us, consider putting spinach in any smoothie you make. Your body will thank you.
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into your favorite glass or to-go cup and enjoy!
