Laura’s Favorite Morning Smoothie

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

My Laura’s Favorite Morning Smoothie is a great way to start your day. Why not start your day with a meal that ‘s loaded with veggies and fruit, almond milk, and some nuts. That’s all this smoothie is! I often don’t feel like a big breakfast, but do need to eat something. So, a smoothie for breakfast is a great option.

To add a little protein and flavor, I love to add in peanut butter or almond butter. You’ll also get some protein from the almond milk. Other than that, it’s just greens, berries, and a banana. We seem to always have overripe bananas here, and I’m always using them to make banana breads and muffins, but there is still an abundance! I just peel them, half them, and toss them in a gallon freezer bag for smoothies. Usually in the winter when it’s colder, I don’t feel much like a smoothie, so now that it’s almost summer, we need to start using them up!

I like adding a little peanut butter or almond butter to my morning smoothies, because often it’s all I eat until late lunch. That helps tie me over a bit. 
Using arugula instead of spinach, you will have a more intense taste.

    Delicious! Great ratios, which is the key for any smoothie. I made 1 serving (half-recipe), and it filled a pint glass and made a great lunch. I used 2% milk, spinach, peanut butter, and frozen strawberries. Sweet and tasty without being overly sweet. This is an excellent standard “go-to” smoothie recipe with lots of room to mix it up – pun intended! 😀

      Perfect! Glad you liked this smoothie recipe. I love the peanut butter in it. I’ll be making more smoothies for breakfast and lunch after the holidays! It’s such a great way to get lots of fruit and veggies in your diet. Love your lots of room to “mix it up” pun!

      Thanks, Laura
