PROTEIN PACKED GREEN SMOOTHIE

Thursday, July 3, 2014


"You can't even taste the spinach." Are you waiting for me to say that? Doesn't every one say that about green smoothies? I mean, they're healthy AND delish. Unless, they taste like you just mowed your lawn, then they just taste healthy.

I'm not into that.

It has got to taste good for me to keep drinking it.

Trust me, you won't have to plug your nose to choke this one down. It really is healthy AND tastes great. I drink this in the morning for breakfast. Like, every morning. But I could eat the same thing every day, for every meal. I'm pretty boring like that, as long as it tastes great.




PROTEIN PACKED GREEN SMOOTHIE
  • 8 oz Almond Milk - Original or Unsweetened - use what you prefer
  • 1 small banana
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 4-5 ice cubes
Blend it up and drink cold. Sometimes I run it twice as long to really get it smooth. 




I'm loving this particular smoothie because it keeps me full until lunch. No snacking needed. It has some killer protein and fiber. If 380 calories (see nutrition info below) seems a bit much for you in the morning, try cutting the banana in half or reducing the Almondmilk to 4 oz. or switch to the unsweetened variety.

Even though it looks like you just mowed you lawn, it doesn't taste like it.  Promise.




Give it a whirl and see what you think.
