Green Monster

I recently purchased a new smoothie maker/food processor and along with this purchase comes talk of great smoothies to make. Thanks to friends, blogs and pinterest, I have plenty of healthy new recipes to try out. 

The Green Monster

Ingredients (serves 1) 
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)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Nutritional stats: 350 calories, 10g fiber, 21g protein

All I am going to say is I am staring at my empty glass as I write this! It was so good! Surprisingly you cannot taste the spinach but knowing that healthy leafy vegetable is in there is a plus! This is a must try!

I would also highly recommend the 

Bella Cucina 12-Piece Rocket Blender Platinum Edition

Available at Macy's.
