Peanut Butter Green Smoothie tastes like a delicious dessert and looks like a shamrock shake. But it’s secretly healthy from kale! If you love peanut butter, this smoothie is for you. And if you or your kids are allergic to peanuts, you can make a Peanut Butter Green Smoothie with another nut butter, like almond or cashew.
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.
Make sure your Peanut Butter Green Smoothie is completely blended before serving. I use a Vitamix, but any high-speed blender will work.
Yields Serves 1
- 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used organic soy)
- 1 handful of kale leaves, ribs removed, about 2 large leaves (or substitute fresh spinach)
- 3 Medjool dates, pits removed
- 2 Tbsp. peanut butter (or other nut butter)
- 2 frozen bananas
- Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix, and blend on high until combined.
- Pour in a glass and enjoy!
Remember to pin it for later!
