This flavorful smoothie clocks in at only 235 calories but still has over 13 grams of filling protein. I’ve been fueling up with this smoothie post workout and powering through the rest of the holiday craziness!

Fuel up without filling out. That’s the tagline for this smoothie, because what self-respecting smoothie doesn’t have a tagline?

You can further slash the calories by using unsweetened almond milk, but you will also forgo some of that filling protein. Your call!

You will love this low calorie Peanut Butter Banana Spinach Smoothie! It packed with spinach, filling protein and peanut butter flavor without tons of calories! Whip one up today for an easy snack or lunch!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain organic soymilk
  • 1 large frozen banana, cut in ½ inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons PB2
  • large handful of fresh spinach (and I do mean large)

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender, Vitamix, Magic Bullet or Nutribullet. I use a Nutribullet because it processes it finer and it’s already in a cup to go!

Notes:

If you don’t have, or can’t find, PB2, you can substitute 2 tablespoons of natural creamy peanut butter but it will add 165 calories and 2 grams of protein.

You can further slash the calories by using unsweetened almond milk, but you will also forgo some of that filling protein. Your call!

    I really need this right now. My husband and I spent all day yesterday putting up new field fencing around our pond to keep our geese from escaping (they keep getting into our neighbors winter wheat field). It was well past dark when we finished. Cold, hungry and no time to fix what I had planned we chose a quick trip into town for the closest fast food (Carl’s Jr.) Bad decision. Fast food make me so sick to my stomach. I think that this smoothie will fix me up nicely.

      I hate fast food too, Karen! Sometimes it is totally unavoidable…This smoothie should totally help!

      I hope you tried it, Mira! It’s so beyond easy! And I totally get it – you’re talking to someone who made twice as many cookies as usual! :-)

      I just got back to the States. NZ was amazing but real life calls! I will be making this smoothie as soon as I can get my hands on some ripe bananas!
