Peanut Butter Banana Green Smoothie

Oh my! I just had the best! smoothie 🙂

I have been a little wary of green smoothies but decided to give it a try (especially since I can’t seem to digest spinach by itself [ie. in a salad, or just raw]). Boy, am I glad I did.
My recipe is based off of this one from The Spunky Coconut! Thanks for the inspiration!
I love, love, bananas and peanut butter! And since I don’t have any protein powder but wanted some protein in this smoothie, I decided to put peanut butter in it!
So good! I could taste both the peanut butter and the banana. (And I couldn’t taste the spinach :)).
Not only is it delicious, this smoothie sneaks in some not usually kid friendly vegetables (which are full of antioxidants- especially good this time of year), protien, fruit, and water to hydrate! And it is not full of sugar or juices. 🙂
Here’s the recipe
3 handfuls baby spinach
2 T. peanut butter (natural)
1/8-1/4. t. powdered stevia
1 c. water
5 icecubes
1 frozen banana, in chunks
Combine in blender and blend well. Makes one very large and filling serving or two normal size servings.
