Best spinach protein shake!!

I am not a “juicer”.  And I have never been able to jump on the “green smoothie” bandwagon. Every one of those I have tried have NOT tasted good to me.

But this one.  This one is good.  And I don’t own a Vitamix or a Blendtec (is that what it’s called).  I just use a regular old blender and it works fine.

This is what I drink after a good workout.
It’s an adapted recipe from the book Fit2Fat2Fit (which is a really interesting book by the way).

Protein Spinach Shake

2-3 cups of spinach (I just grab a few handfuls and shove them on the bottom of the blender)
3/4 C almond milk (or you could use regular milk)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein (I get a big bag of this at Costco)
1/2 banana
1 Tbsp peanut butter (I use Skippy natural)
1-2 cups of ice (this makes it cold, obviously, and thicker)

Mix it all up!

Looks nasty.  Tastes gooooood!!!  (Like, good good, not “healthy” good.  Trust me)

  1. I am going to try this one. i as well do not own a blentec (sp), so I can’t wait to finally try a ‘green’ smoothie!

  2. i will try this with Almond butter instead of peanut butter and add 1/2 apple, maybe a few unsweetened coconut flakes. I do have a Vitamix and use it everyday for many different recipes!!

    1. Norma,
      Let me know if you like it with almond butter. I’ve never tried it with that, but I imagine it will be good!

  3. I have been doing this for a while now. I love it! I have it almost every morning. My only change from your recipe is to add 1/2 cup of vanilla or pina colada yogurt if the bananas aren’t very ripe. It adds a little sweet and a little smooth.

    1. Katie,

      That’s a great idea. Sometimes my bananas aren’t quite ready! That’s a good alternative.
