Peanut Butter Green Smoothie tastes like a creamy dessert, but it’s full of healthy kale. And you only need five ingredients to make this dairy-free vegan smoothie.

I admit, some days I feel like have a chocolate or peanut butter smoothie for breakfast.
Do you ever feel that way?
However, I know I should try to start my day with some super healthy greens.
So one morning I came up with a solution.
Why not add a handful of kale or spinach to my
milkshake smoothie to get the best of both worlds?
In addition, I decided to add Medjool dates to make it naturally sweet.
I promise you won’t even taste the kale!
And if kale isn’t your thing, spinach is even easier to camouflage.
You’ll be left with a creamy peanut butter smoothie that just happens to be a vibrant green color.
And if you or your kids are allergic to peanuts, you can make a Peanut Butter Green Smoothie with another nut butter, like almond, cashew, or sunbutter.
This Peanut Butter Green Smoothie is perfect as a recovery meal after a run or workout.
It’s high in potassium, an essential electrolyte we sweat out during exercise.
And it also contains a healthy mix of carbohydrate, fat, and protein.
Plus it’s high in vitamins A and C, along with calcium and iron.
