Blueberry and Greens Smoothie

Something about making yourself a smoothie feels indulgent and satisfying all on its own. Knowing you hold something in your hand that’s blended together with whole ingredients that’s going to give you energy, make you feel refreshed, and will nourish your body is ultra satisfying. I keep experimenting with new smoothie recipes, trying to see just how many things will go well together and so far I haven’t been disappointed.

I will admit that using fresh spinach gives you a heavier consistency and that if you’re not careful you’ll end up with blueberries in your teeth like I did. But a smoothie in the morning gives me energy like nothing else!

For this one I blended:

  • 1 green apple
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Under 300 Calories

Having trouble eating breakfast in the morning? Try drinking it. A good way to get fruit down on the go is through smoothies but without the ice cream 😉

This morning I created a smoothie with stuff I had around the house:

I blended up:

1 1/2 frozen banana (freeze bananas if you know you won’t be able to eat them before they go bad)

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

286 calories 🙂
