Peanut butter banana smoothie with spinach is a healthy breakfast or snack and full of wholesome ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1 cup packed fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat or 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1-3 tablespoons milk of choice (see notes)
  • Honey, to taste

Instructions

Add bananas, spinach, Greek yogurt, peanut butter and chia seeds to the blender and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.

Add milk to get the desired consistency and honey to sweeten, as needed.

Serve with desired toppings and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The chia seeds are optional. I like adding them for some extra nutrition but you can skip them if you don’t have any.
I add about 2 tablespoons of milk or so to get these to the right consistency for my kids to drink them with a straw. Do a splash at a time until it’s how you want it - thinner for a drinkable smoothie or thicker for a smoothie bowl. (And you can use any kind of milk here.)
Fun topping ideas include: Chia or hemp seeds, sliced bananas, a drizzle of peanut butter, fresh or frozen berries (we love strawberries with this) and granola. (My 5-ingredient peanut butter granola would be great here!)
