So I learned from writing this post that photographing food is hard!! Hats off to the super talented food bloggers and recipe developers I admire so much. I just wanted to share this delicious spinach smoothie I started making a few months ago. You know I always credit the source and I feel terrible that I can’t remember where this awesome recipe came from. It was on Facebook so if anyone knows…please let me know! I did tweak it by using peanut butter instead of almond butter and I added my favorite protein powder for extra boost.

Take your blender and fill it with:

1 cup of fresh spinach
1 fresh or frozen banana
2 tablespoons of peanut butter (or almond butter)
2 cups of unsweetened almond milk (or as my mom says hay que tantearle!) If you want it thicker, use less almond milk.
1 serving of Vega Protein Smoothie Powder (I use Oh Natural flavor)
A sprinkle of ground cinnamon

Blend and enjoy!

It is the yummiest green smoothie you can possibly have and it’s packed with protein. I love it after a nice workout or for a lunch on the go. Do you have a variation of this recipe? Please share in the comments below!
