I decided to give my most-pinned-smoothie a healthified-twist. This smoothie started with peanut butter, nutella, banana, and yogurt. I put a few tweaks to it and loved it just as much!
2-3 tablespoons flaxseeds or 2-3 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup milk
1 cup ice cubes
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons nutella
5 oz vanilla Greek yogurt
In a coffee grinder, grind the flaxseeds into powder.
Blend the spinach, milk and then add ice and blend more.
Add in the banana, peanut butter, nutella, yogurt, and flax seeds.
Blend again until smooth.
Twists to up the nutritional value:
Greek yogurt versus regular yogurt: Greek yogurt adds more protein, and is an easy change for this smoothie.
Greens: who doesn’t need another serving of veggies? The spinach is so mild that it literally doesn’t add any flavor, just more veggies.
Flaxseed: I got these when I was breastfeeding but they add fiber and omega-3s. I learned they’re best absorbed when ground. Noted.
