Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

 I have fallen in love with a new smoothie creation. The vanilla/peanut butter /banana smoothie:


(Strategically placed on my balcony next to our "seeds of love", which have finally decided to bloom after five months of lying dormant...)

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
3 ice cubes
1 cup almond milk
1 banana
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1 cup spinach

 The rich, dessert-like flavor of this drink makes you feel like you are drinking a real ice cream smoothie, yet almond milk has only 90 calories in 1 cup and no animal fat. It also has Vitamin D and Calcium without hurting anything! Spinach is high in iron, vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin E. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, is high in fiber, and aids in digestion, eye, skin, and brain function. So grab a handful (or four) of spinach, some almond milk, and whatever fruit you fancy, and blend away!

Um de Dum Di YUM!
Love the combo & you are such a well behaved girl you put greens in the damn thing too!
Argh, are you going to guilt me into it??
Maybe.......

I was just thinking how good some banana & cacao & nuts would be and then you had to do the whole green thing.

:) Or is that what one calls positive influence?

This does sound reeeeally good but can you taste the spinach? I'm picky about smoothies! :)
