Banana + PB Summer Smoothie

My new goal was to try and avoid TWO cups of coffee each day. And just have one. And by "cups" I mean double lattes. Thanks to a baby that wakes up a few times a night, I've justified drinking four espressos a day. YIKES. 

At the recommendation of a friend, I've started making smoothies that have a ton of vegetables in them: celery, kale, spinach, zucchini, cucumbers, super healthy green things etc. etc. etc. 

This is not that. 

There are sneaky greens in here you can't even taste, but it's very sweet and the kids LOVE it. 

I tell them this is actually called a "Curious George Smoothie." Bananas, a monkey, you get it. 

What you need:
  1. 1-2 cups of milk (1 cup if the bananas aren't frozen, more like 2 if they are)
  2. 4 tbsp peanut butter
  3. 3 bananas (bonus points if they are frozen! Makes it creamier)
  4. 1 handful of spinach
  5. 1/8 cup chopped chocolate chips
P.S. I've been eyeing this Ninja blender because I'm newly obsessed with the Ninja Foodi pressure cooker/slow cooker/air fryer...and why not just use Ninja everying? My 4-year-old who loves actual ninjas agrees. 😉(Affiliate links)

What recipes are you trying this summer?
