There are many variations to the smoothie and juice trend called the “green monster.” It is a tasty way to get your greens into your diet and your childrens diet. This weekend I made a green drink for my nieces and they loved it! They went home and told their mom how much they need a Vitamix blender now. It is so important to teach are youth about good nutrition and healthy eating for our bodys to thrive not about deprivation or starvation to be a certain size. I love these girls so much and want them to grow up loving themselves for who they are and I want them to take care of their bodies the best they can by staying active and eating healthy so they can live a long, happy, and healthy life.
I have this every morning for breakfast now and I absolutely love it. If you like peanut butter and banana combo, you will too. I promise you can’t taste the spinach.
Green Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 frozen banana
2 handfuls of fresh organic spinach
2 tablespoons of PB2 or if you prefer peanut butter that works too
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
Blend in a high speed blender such as a vitamix until smooth (about 45 seconds)
