Spring is finally here in Baltimore! On April 23rd. It's about time.
Warm weather means SMOOTHIE weather! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know it's no secret that I love smoothies. Especially green smoothies. However, the first time I ever tried one, I was really skeptical. It's hard to believe someone telling you that adding a ton of spinach to a drink isn't going to change the taste at all.
But I'm here to tell you it doesn't! And to share my go-to green smoothie recipe. The green smoothie starter kit, if you will. It's really simple and made with ingredients that you most likely already have in your refrigerator. Plus it packs a nutritious punch and tastes like dessert for breakfast. Win, win...right?!
I like to think the secret to the deliciousness is the blending order AND the yogurt. I love Siggi's yogurt and have found that it adds a thickness to my smoothies unlike any other brand. Adding PB2 rather than peanut butter gives the smoothie a much stronger peanut flavor that makes this basically taste like a peanut butter milkshake.
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 container plain Siggi's yogurt
- 2 TBSP PB2
- 2 cups spinach
- Place frozen banana, almond milk, yogurt and PB2 in blender
- Blend on high for 2-3 minutes, or until smooth.
- Add spinach and blend on high for 30-45 seconds, or until all spinach is completely blended in.
