Green Smoothie with Peanut Butter and Banana
This simple smoothie is loaded with fresh spinach leaves, banana, peanut butter and Greek yogurt. It’s healthy and nutritious!
I’m kind of obsessed with bananas. I could have them in cake form with a Nutella swirl, deep fried or even in a savory breakfast french toast. But I think I found my all-time favorite use for bananas in a green smoothie.
Now before I even came close to trying a green smoothie, the thought of it made me nauseous and sick to my stomach. I mean, spinach leaves in a drink? Gross. But that all changed when I tried it myself. And to my surprise, it’s pretty freakishly awesome. After all, when you consider the boatload of spinach leaves that go in, it’s amazing as to how it doesn’t really taste all that spinachy!
So with a combination of bananas, a bit of peanut butter and some greek yogurt, you’ll be able to have your cake and eat it too!
And since we’re having a banana party here with this newfound amazing green smoothie, I have to share Dole’s exciting Peel the Love Food Truck Tour that’s happening across the nation. They’ll be in Maryland until August 18th and from there, they’ll be moving to their last and final stops in New York so if you’re in the area, I highly recommend stopping by!
And to continue this banana fun, here are some of my favorite banana recipes:
