recipe of the week {the green smoothie}

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to drink one smoothie a day.  When I went in for my yearly healthy physical the nurse looked over my information and said I'm not eating nearly enough green leafy vegetables or whole grains.  (Does anyone? yuck!) So, here I am trying to awful looking green smoothie.  It can't be good my mind tells me.  Its like eating green ketchup.  You know its supposed to be good but it looks awful.

My good friend Emily recommended this recipe to me from Skinny Taste.  And ladies and gents, its absolutely delicious.  No seriously, it is!  And I felt good about myself because today I got in a full dosage of green leafy vegetables.  I might even give myself a little pat on the back.

*Cheers* to New Year's Resolutions



The Skinny Green Monster

{the goods}
1 small frozen ripe banana, peeled and sliced
2 cups baby spinach
1 Tbl Peanut Butter
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I used 1%)

Dump and blend.  Too thick?  Add some ice or a little orange juice.
