Spinach Green Smoothie and it’s Yummy!
I found this recipe for this green smoothie on pinterest and decided to try it and loved it! I know… looks gross… like something for Saint Patrick’s day or something. Am I a total healthy freak who thinks all that gross healthy stuff tastes good? Nope.. not at all. I am a total sugar-holic (but going through sugar de-tox now! LOL ) I do not have a taste for veggies, they are hard for me to get down, so this is a great way to do it.
Does it taste like spinach…. NO! Believe it or not.
I have been having one each morning and it holds me until lunch… easy!
This has been referred to as a diet secret weapon…. and I can see why!
It tastes like a banana peanut butter milk shake.
It is around 350 calories per serving – but remember, it is a meal and it is so healthy and will help you not to have those in between cravings.
1/2 cup fat free or low fat yogurt (Greek yogurt would be good, but it is more expensive, so I don’t use it)
1 cup skim milk
1 banana (you can slice & freeze ahead if you want, I use ice cubes instead)
1 T peanut butter
several cups of leaf spinach
hand full of ice cubes
Cup up your banana
Add 1/2 cup yogurt
Add 1 tablespoon peanut butter
Add 1 cup skim milk
Fill the rest with spinach
Add a handful of ice.
Pulse your blender until the ice has made it’s way down. I like to put it on top because it seems to push the spinach down a little better. Once your ice is chopped pretty well… then let it blend on smoothie or high for about a full minute. There shouldn’t be any pieces of spinach left. (at least that is how I like it)
You get a large serving. Drink it all.
It tastes like a peanut butter banana shake!!! Honest! My 11 year old tried it and liked it (the other one wouldn’t try it)
So happy I found this… you’ll have to try it!
I made the shake myself. These are my pictures. Please do not use them without permission, other than pinning them to pinterest. That I would love! :)
