This is currently one of my favorite ways to make a smoothie. It comes out thick and creamy, perfect for a granola topper. My chunky monkey granola works great on top of this smoothie. This is the perfect smoothie to have after a sweaty workout! It is packed with nutrients (spinach, banana) and protein. I recently picked up xanthan gum when I was in Las Vegas. I started adding 1/2 teaspoon to my smoothies and it really helps binding everything together so it stays super creamy. I’d highly recommend the purchase, it will last you a while!
Green Peanut Butter Smoothie Serves 1 hungry person
4 ounces almond milk
4 ounces water, chilled
1/2 banana, sliced and frozen
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
Dash sea salt and cinnamon
Handful baby spinach
4-5 ice cubes
1-2 tablespoons chunky monkey granola
Put ingredients in order and blend away. Depending on consistency you can add more liquid or ice. I tend to add more ice, for a thicker smoothie. Pour in a huge glass and top with chunky monkey granola. Eat with spoon and enjoy!
