Green Breakfast Smoothie

Yum
This easy and delicious dairy free green breakfast smoothie is the perfect energizing start to your day!

If you, like me, are in that post-Christmas I-ate-too-many-sweets haze, this green breakfast smoothie is for you! It takes only a few minutes to make, is packed full of vitamins, and is super delicious to boot. I've been making it for years, and it's perpetually a favorite. Even the kids love it! My four year old, who abhors anything green, drained her cup in all of five seconds and asked for more. Pretty amazing for a green drink, right?

If you haven't made a green smoothie before, this is the perfect easy recipe to start with. Believe it or not, it doesn't taste like spinach at all. Even my supertaster eight year old told me that it just tasted like bananas and almond milk and kept begging me to tell her what was making the smoothie green, since she couldn't taste anything "weird." I did finally tell her that it had spinach in it, to which she replied, "That's the best spinach I've ever had!" I can't help but agree. :)

Green Breakfast Smoothie

1 cup almond milk or soy milk (I like vanilla flavor)
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach
1 banana
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon honey (more or less to taste)
5-6 ice cubes

Add the almond milk, spinach, banana, peanut butter, and honey to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

  4. Made this recipe this morning. My 4-year-old, while not picky, doesn't always like to try new things. She drank half my blender!

    1. I would say 2 adult servings, or 4 child servings. I split it with my two girls and it was just the right amount.
