Peanut Butter Cup Green Smoothie

Some days you crave a salad….and some days you crave a milkshake.  For those sorts of less-disciplined moments, I whip up this green smoothie.  Healthy–but not healthy-tasting–it cures my cravings for something sweet and rich.

If you like peanut butter and chocolate (who doesn’t?!?!),  you will love this green smoothie.  It has the added bonus of having an entire cup of spinach–which is full of lots of good stuff like potassium, calcium, fiber, and folate but has only 7 calories.  Eat your heart out!

This green smoothie recipe is from my upcoming e-book, 100 Days of Green Smoothies: Lose Weight, Detox, and Feel Great!  Join our email list now to get updates, free recipes, and to be amongst the first fans to receive a copy of the book


Instructions: Blend spinach and almond milk until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients and blend again.  Drink up!


  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 banana (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
