A picky eater’s green smoothie



We are green smoothie skeptics and not even huge smoothie people, but we all love this peanut butter smoothie we’ve been throwing together, mostly at breakfast. It’s a sort of throwback to the peanut butter mood smoothie you could get from Zuka(?) juice once upon a time and maybe Jamba Juice; although this is really a tribute to the homemade version my dad would make us and sneak in raw carrots. Here’s te recipe that Pen Elaine loves and uses stuff we typically have on hand:

  1. 1/2 cup milk
  2. 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  3. 1-2 Tbl peanut butter
  4. 2 Tbl Ovaltine (chocolate powder)
  5. 1 tsp honey (optional, we used local)
  6. 1 frozen, then peeled banana
  7. 1/2 cup frozen, chopped spinach
  8. (After above ingredients are well mixed/ pulsed in blender) 5 ice cubes

Blend those in very well on highest setting
Yum!! Makes 2 – 2.5 servings
