One of the easiest ways to get a variety of nutrition in a meal is to just make a smoothie. I like to add a few veggies to my smoothies because sometimes I find it hard to get into the veggie eating mood. Usually when I purchase a hand of bananas, I break each finger up into six pieces and freeze them (banana cubes). Afterwards, I just simply throw them along with a few other ingredients into my Vitamix and let the blender do the rest of the work.
Today, my blender has been working overtime in order to make this scrumptious and nutritious glass of goodness for an afternoon snack. Now it’s your turn to try it. Here’s what you’ll need:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
(Makes 1 serving)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (original, vanilla, or chocolate)
3-6 banana cubes (frozen banana pieces)
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp unsweetened coco powder
1/2 scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder ( I use UMP)
1 cup spinach (may turn smoothie green)
- Add all ingredients into blender. Blend until mixture is smooth. Simple and Done!
