go-to green smoothie

hey y'all! today's post features guest blogger molly of heytheresunshine.com. she's not only a great blogger and talented graphic designer, but my wonderful friend and co-founder of birmingham bloggers. today she's sharing a super simple, healthy smoothie recipe with y'all. go check her blog out! enjoy!

i don't know about you, but i'm always looking for a quick, healthy breakfast and this one has been a go-to for me for a couple of years now. i know a bright green smoothie looks really strange, but it tastes deliciously peanut buttery and is still healthy! i always add a little ice at the end to thicken it up, but the frozen banana gives it a good, creamy texture if you don't add the ice. and obviously, PB2 is a favorite ingredient of mine to help keep things lightened up, plus it's wonderful as a substitute for regular peanut butter, too.

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 container chobani simply 100 vanilla (or other vanilla greek yogurt)
1 frozen ripe banana
2 tablespoons PB2 powder
1-2 handfuls of baby spinach
flaxseed (optional)
ice (optional)

add all ingredients to blender (i usually start with almond milk, PB2, and yogurt, then add the remaining ingredients on top of them). blend until smooth, add ice to thicken after ingredients are well blended. enjoy!

you can customize your smoothie by removing the PB2, adding your favorite frozen fruits, and replacing the vanilla greek yogurt with a complimentary fruit flavor.
