Okay, back to our regularly scheduled smoothie...
Austin and I have been on a bit of a health kick recently, and one thing that we've been doing differently is breakfast. Instead of our usual sugary cereal or eggs and toast, I've been making us green smoothies. I've tried several different recipes, but this PB banana is my favorite so far.
3 tablespoons oats (you can also use flaxseed)
1 big handful of baby spinach
1 giant spoonful of natural peanut butter
2 cups of almond milk
Throw the oats into a blender...
Then add in some spinach.
Next, break up the naners, and toss them in too.
Add the peanut butter...
And pour in the almond milk!
Now, you could stop here and blend away if you wanted. Everything would taste great! However, I like to add in a little something extra to really make this sucker taste incredible: chocolate milk mix! Hey, I'm drinking spinach...I think it's okay to add in something a little sinful mwahahahaha.
I only put in about a tablespoon of nesquick (reduced sugar!), and it really sends this baby over the top.
Anyway, blend everything until it's smooth and all mixed up.
This recipe makes two servings, which is perfect for my little family of two!
This stuff is delicious, and I really feel like I'm starting my day out right when I drink one for breakfast. Adding in the oats or flaxseed helps me stay full all morning long, and that's saying a lot since I'm running around teaching 7th graders to write all day, ha.
