I love this chunky monkey green smoothie so much.
But not as much as my four-year-old.
When she hears the blender (And who wouldn’t? The only reason she’d ignore it is if she thought an M-16 fighter jet was landing at our house but I digress…), you can be sure you’ll have a small person at your hip with a suggestion: “How about if we share?”
No problem. It’s so good–and good for you–that I’ve just started doubling the recipe.
- 1 banana
- ½ cup baby spinach (about a handful)
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter (unsweetened)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup milk (any kind)
- 1 cup ice
- Blend and enjoy!
Other delicious ways to add more protein:
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 cup silken tofu (drained)
p.s. This is a close second favorite smoothie…
