The Ultimate Green Smoothie

We are keeping our fitness goals going in February. The green smoothie was vital to our nutrition success in January. To celebrate we are sharing our best green smoothie recipe – THE ULTIMATE GREEN SMOOTHIE, if you will. Made with just 5 ingredients (banana, pear, kale, JIF peanut powder & almond milk), you will want to print this one out and make it part of your daily routine.

Just like you, I don’t have a lot of extra time in my morning so I love things that are simple and help me fuel my busy day. This ultimate green smoothie is just the thing. The ingredients can be prepped ahead of time and pulled from the freezer any time you are ready. It’s the perfect start for busy mornings, after school, or post workout.
