Spinach Banana Smoothie

I've really been trying to maintain a healthy diet while pregnant.  Sure, I'll give into my cravings from time time (the giant chocolate chip cookies from Le Pain Quotidien are incredible in case you were wondering), but one of my biggest challenges is finding healthy, satisfying snacks that I can eat throughout the day.  Whether they're made with spinach or kale, I've always been a huge fan of green smoothies.  They're packed with vitamins and minerals, are easy to make and can taste SO good when made with the right ingredients.  I've been making this spinach smoothie for quite some time now and absolutely love it.  Here's how: 



  Handful of fresh spinach
1 sliced banana
1 tbsp of peanut butter* and non-fat vanilla greek yogurt
1 cup milk of your choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (about 30 seconds)
Healthy.Refreshing.Delicious.

*I used Better'n Peanut Butter to keep things healthy

  1. This is so interesting! I love spinach by itself, but I've always wanted to try it in a smoothie but was too afraid it would taste too "spinach-y". I'm definitely trying this. :) <3
