Green Smoothie with Peanut Butter and Banana Recipe

Start your day with a green smoothie with peanut butter and notice a difference! This is a very simple smoothie with fresh spinach, banana, peanut butter and coconut milk. It is full of vitamins, minerals and even protein!

Peanut butter is surprisingly filled with health benefits. It is high in protein and healthy oil which can help with diabetes, weight loss, and Alzheimer’s disease.

No food is perfect, though; there are some cautions with peanuts. Hopefully, you are not one of the 1% that is highly allergic to peanuts.

Make sure you are using good peanut butter. Read the label. Natural, old-fashioned organic peanut butter with no hydrogenated fats and sugar is the best.  Choose peanut butter that contains only peanuts and salt. This kind is full of peanut flavor and doesn’t contain additives and is better for the environment too. Refrigerate it and turn it upside down in the fridge so the peanut oils and solids can re-mix.

Find out the health benefits of the other ingredients I used for this recipe:

Spinach – Spinach was a powerfood even before there was the term Powerfood.  Even without Popeye’s recommendation, spinach contains more nutrients per calorie than any other food on the earth.

Banana – Bananas are healthy for you and that’s a good thing since they are the most popular fruit in North America.
Everyone loves bananas. There are more songs, jokes, and silliness with this food than with any other plant on earth. Bananas are powerfoods!

Now time to make your green smoothie with peanut butter.
