I’ve been really enjoying my green smoothies, everyday. That says a lot coming from me… I’m not one who likes my food in the form of green, unless it’s green – smathered in butter and cheese and ranch dip. (I realize smathered isn’t a word, but I like it anyway ;)) Okay, I’m a responsible adult, my green stuff doesn’t ALWAYS have to be smathered in butter and cheese and ranch dip, but it sure helps!
Anyhoo, I’ve really been liking these green smoothies! I usually have one for, either, lunch or breakfast. I never – ever – thought I would like a green smoothie, EVER!! Let alone try one. FO’ RILZ people!
All I can say is yumm-OHHH! You really cannot tell there is anything green in here.
Green Smoothie Goodness
1 frozen sliced banana (I cut up a banana and placed it on parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet to freeze.)
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon honey (You can omit this, but I think it helps hide the spinach a little more. Maybe it’s just me…)
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (greek, light, or regular yogurt)
1 cup milk (any kind)
3 big handfuls of baby spinach
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

It has a nice peanut butter taste, and you wouldn’t even know it’s good for you!
I’ve tried other smoothies, but this, so far, is my fave.
