Despite the color, you won't even taste the spinach in this PB and Greens Smoothie recipe. It makes the prefect breakfast or snack!
If you know me, I'm all about a good smoothie. It might be because they are an easy way to get in all the essentials-- protein, veggies, carbs, fats, and fluids. Or it might be because they are a conveienint option when I'm pressed for time and on the go. They are also a great way to escape the heat in the summer.
It's already in the upper 90s here in Florida and I'm looking for any way I can to cool off. Don't get me wrong, I do like warm weather, but upper 90s is just too hot and sticky. To get in a good outdoor workout, you have to get out early in the morning or wait until late evening when the sun is about to go down, but at that point it's like bed time. So morning workouts are the best option for outdoor running in the Florida summer.
This PB and Greens Smoothie is one of my go to combos. I love the lemony addition with the peanut butter. I love the simplicity of this smoothie but it doesnt have protein so if you want to make it for recovery pair it with a chicken salad, eggs, or even a protein bar. You can always add protein powder to the smoothie but it will change the flavor a bit. Enjoy!
