I saw a Vitamix® demo the other day. Then I realized my Waring Pro® blender at home was already fully capable of the same smoothie greatness, so I got inspired to cram more nutrients into my life by blending them up. The resulting mixture is happy and bright green, but it tastes more like bananas and peanut butter. I can't taste the spinach (though I love it). If it's too thick, use more milk or/and less yogurt and peanut butter. Feel free to substitute nuts for your favorites.

This is a large serving, but I ate it for lunch, so it was great. I used the full cup of milk, which I chose to use almond. You get a mild taste of all the flavors. I used vanilla yogurt. The thing I would do differently next time is use a frozen banana. This was just not cold enough for me, and I think freezing the banana would help with the overall texture of the smoothie. If my husband were drinking this, he would need a squirt of honey to make it a little sweeter. Read More

This is good. I used coconut greek yogurt no almonds and regular milk. (Didn't have all the right stuff). Great nut taste and plenty of protein. Read More
