The Skinny Green Monster Smoothie from Skinnytaste.com

I love smoothies, especially in the morning after a workout. Some of them can be calorie bombs and lack in nutritional value. I found one on one of my favorite blogs Skinnytaste.com called the Skinny Green Monster. With just a few simple ingredients you can refuel in a healthy way.

The recipe below was taken from Skinnytaste.com. I used Fage Greek Yogurt instead of Chobani and I also said you could substitute peanut butter with PB2 to cut out some of the fat and calories.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small frozen ripe banana, peeled
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter (I used Whole Foods the one you grind yourself) – you can also use PB2 instead to cut out some of the fat and calories
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt (I used Fage)

This is a large serving, about 2 cups (16 oz), so I usually make it all and give half to my hubby. On Skinnytaste.com she says it is one serving (the whole 16oz) so I adjusted the nutritional facts below for an 8oz serving size.

Directions:

  • Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth
