Prep Time: 5 minutes
Ready In: 5 minutes
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
- 2 cups red grapes (frozen ones will make your smoothie colder)
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Note: This twist on a classic packs in more vitamins, protein and easy-to-digest fiber than the traditional sandwich. Spinach is loaded with iron and vitamin C, the banana brings in potassium and fiber, and red grapes provide resveratrol—the same heart-healthy antioxidant grown-ups benefit from in red wine. The almond milk and peanut butter add protein to help build strong muscles, as well as a balanced source of quick-burning carbohydrates to fuel the day. Plus, it tastes so great that kids will forget they’re eating vegetables.
