PB&J Green Smoothie

Yesterday, we had a crazy blizzard here in Buffalo, which means I had ample time to bake the day away, do laundry, cuddle kitties, and do some packing.  It actually thundered while it snowed.  How awesome is that?!  Needless to say, I can’t wait to get to the 70-80 degree weather in Vegas this weekend!

And now, to this delicious smoothie!  I’ve been trying to eat extra healthy this week because I know I’m not going to be that good next week; it is a vacation, after all!  This smoothie fit that bill perfectly – simple, healthy ingredients.  Super refreshing.  I drank it as my post-workout all week.  :)

Strawberries, peanut butter, yogurt, and spinach combine to make a smoothie reminiscent of a classic PB&J – childhood at its finest.  But healthier!  😉

PB&J Green Smoothie

  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • liquid stevia, to taste (I use about 7 drops)
  • water or milk to thin, if necessary

In a high powdered blender, combine all of the ingredients, and blend until smooth. Sweeten with liquid stevia, to taste, and add milk or water to reach your desired consistency. Enjoy!

    Very good. I ended up using soy milk in the place of the yogurt. I had to put a little more to make it thinner. But it actuallly tastes like pb&j. I didn’t even put sugar and it came out great!
