This is my go-to recipe because it’s packed with nutrients that keep me full and energized. It also minimizes the sugar that smoothies can sometimes be full of by balancing out the fruit with other ingredients :)
Bananas and blueberries make a great fruit pair for smoothies. Peanut butter gives it a creamy texture and adds some protein and healthy fats to keep you feeling satisfied. Oats provide a nice little dose of fiber-rich whole grains. And of course, adding baby spinach is a great way to sneak some extra greens into your day. I promise, though, you won’t even taste it!
I usually eyeball it when it comes to making something like this, so here are my estimations, and you can definitely adjust the measurements to your liking:
1/2 cup blueberries
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons oats
Two handfuls of baby spinach
1/2 cup water or almond milk (or any other kind of milk)
...And just blend together!
If you're not feeling the peanut butter, plain greek yogurt is a great alternative. Kale can be substituted for the spinach. And if you prefer a thicker consistency, start with less water/milk and then slowly add more as needed.
