Chocolate-Banana-Spinach Smoothie

Most mornings the kids and I start the day with a blueberry-spinach smoothie.  We all love it and it is super healthy, but sometimes I feel like changing the routine a bit.  When we’re not in the mood for homemade pancakes or steel cut oatmeal, I will try a new smoothie recipe.  Yesterday I decided to treat the kids to a breakfast shake that tasted a lot like a chocolate milk shake.  Because there is no refined sugar, but plenty of bananas and spinach, I didn’t feel guilty for starting the day with something a little sweet.  No massive sugar rush involved!

We all loved it – its a new addition to our breakfast rotation!

Chocolate Banana Spinach Smoothie

2 cups almond milk

2 bananas

2 good scoops peanut butter (I always use homemade peanut butter)

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

big handful baby spinach leaves

2 tablespoons honey

2-3 teaspoons ground flaxseed


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until ice is crushed.
