I’ve been LOVING green smoothies lately. It took me almost 2 years to drink them and like them. The greenness just freaked me out…even thought you can’t even taste the spinach…at all! 

I cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye, promise you that this tastes exactly like peanut butter heaven.

Quote me, go ahead.

I made this smoothie at my parent’s house last week while I was in Cleveland, and I couldn’t for the life of me find the blender…but I did find this hand held gadget that worked like a charm.

I think I want one now.

It ground through ice, no problem. Now- that’s heavy duty.

So- In the mix you have nanner, sweetened almond milk, peanut butter, whole peanuts that are salted (because it tastes better that way), and some ice. Note- you can omit the ice if your nanner is frozen, but mine was fresh- so ice it was.

You could totally make this exact same recipe with-

  • cashew butter and cashews
  • almond butter almonds
  • sun butter and sun flower seeds

Why the heck not. It’s such a great way to get your greens and healthy fats all in one.
