Green PB Banana Smoothie

I have still been on a summer smoothie kick so I have another smoothie recipe to share today.  This smoothie gets its amazing green color from Spirulina, an ingredient I haven’t used in a while but have enjoyed using this past week!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used Amande)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp spirulina (Can be omitted)
  • Optional: 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sunwarrior)

Directions:  Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

This smoothie is pretty thick so I actually poured it into a bowl (Smoothie In A Bowl!), topped it with some peanuts, and ate it with a spoon! It was a perfect snack mid-afternoon after having been outside reading in the hot sun.  Also, the spirulina was a great energy boost!
