green smoothie

i love a green smoothie, it is so easy to make and delicious too!

ingredients: (for single serve, just double the ingredients to make for two people)
1 banana (ripe)
generous handful of spinach or kale
a few table spoons of greek non-fat yogurt (plain or vanilla)
almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
2 tablespoons of quick oats (optional)
1 tablespoon of peanut butter (optional)

all the ingredients ready to go, minus the peanut butter
just throw all ingredients into a blender, add the peanut butter and oats to make it a more subtantial meal. i add enough milk to make it the consistency i like, you can also add water instead of milk if you want to reduce calories. almond milk is pretty low on calories though, and lactose free.

ingredients ready to be blended together

i enjoyed my green smoothie today with some avocado spreaded on toast, it was a green day today and a totally delicious light lunch!

anyone out there have a favorite green smoothie recipe you want to share?
