PB&J Swirl

pb&j smoothiePrep Time: 5 minutes
Ready In: 5 minutes
Servings: 2


Ingredients:

  • 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)

Directions:

  1. 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.
