Post Workout - The Green Monster Smoothie
After a great workout you may find yourself wondering, "now what can I eat or drink?" This is a great post-workout snack that will re-energize & keep you filled for hours. The taste of the banana and the peanut butter cover the taste of the spinach completely. I freeze my bananas and spinach then prepackage everything for the week! Substitutions include rice or nut milks or vanilla yogurt. Here is the recipe.
1 cup fat-free milk (I use soymilk)
½ cup fat-free plain (I use soy yogurt or sometimes omit this ingredient)
1 banana, frozen and
1 tablespoon natural
2 cups fresh spinach
1 cup ice cubes
Blend milk, yogurt, banana, peanut butter, spinach and ice cubes until smooth.
