Peanut Butter Banana Surprise Smoothie

There are many green smoothie recipes. If your first thought is that they must taste like grass or something else pulled straight from the flower bed, let me tell you, this isn't THAT smoothie.
The peanut butter banana surprise smoothie is green and it is good for you but it is totally delicious! It is a great way to fuel up on some protein your body can use to function at it's highest capacity while sneaking in some important greens.
The spinach adds the color but doesn't alter the taste.
(That's the surprise part)
Give it a try and tell me what you think! Would you add or change anything?

In a standard blender, combine;
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 small or medium banana
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon liquefied coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
Blend until all of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and enjoy the smooth peanut butter goodness!
