Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

It’s no secret by now that I use smoothies to sneak spinach into my diet.  A couple weeks back I tried this recipe I pinned from one of my favorite bloggers, Iowa Girl Eats.  Since a banana with peanut butter is one of my favorite snacks, I thought I was sure to love it.

I thought it was tasty, but not as satisfying as “the real thing.”  It’s worth the trade-off nutritionally, though.  In addition to being packed with spinach, the greek yogurt adds extra protein.  And we all know how important that is.

Ingredients:

1 frozen sliced banana

1 Tablespoon peanut butter

1/2 cup 0% Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt

1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or other kind of milk)

4 cups baby spinach (or more, or less)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Nutritional stats:

350 calories, 10g fiber, 21g protein

Give it a try and let me know what you think!  Or check out my favorite smoothie recipe here.

    It certainly LOOKS good, and you can’t beat that 21g of protein. I might have to try it…
