the green monster

So, I got this recipe from here and I thought- I cannot eat something made with spinach like that... I do love spinach. I haven't been able to eat peanut butter since that was ALL I ate when pregnant... I hate greek yogurt and I am not a huge fan of bananas... BUT- for some reason I was intrigued to try this smoothie. Let me tell you... It WILL be a new lunch or breakfast menu item in this house for sure! I cannot wait for Michael to get home and try it. According to the site I got it from, it has 350 calories, 10g of fiber and 21g of protein. Granted, I only ate half and put the other half in the freezer for later, this is a pretty healthy little fella. Here is how I made it... a slight variation from the original recipe:

Serves 1 --> although I saved half for later.


1 frozen sliced banana

1 Tablespoon peanut butter

1/2 cup 0% Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt

1 cup 2% milk

4 cups baby spinach (or more, or less)




  1. Sounds good!!! I have been looking for a protein smoothie to make for breakfasts when I start going to the gym in the morning instead of at night...I will try it out!
