Spring Green Smoothie

Spring Green Smoothie (21)text

I imagine that not a lot of people get excited over green smoothies. It’s sort of a chore. “Oh yeah, I had like six cookies yesterday…better have a green smoothie.” Or “The Holidays were rough. Better have a green smoothie.”

Here’s the green smoothie that isn’t a chore. That you’ll request on purpose. That you might even look forward to. Granted, the name doesn’t convey a whole lot of enthusiasm, but not everything’s in a name. Besides, the full name would be something like: Totally Rad Spinach Peanut Butter Yogurt Smoothie. That’s a really long name. Even if you’re not asleep by the end, you’ll probably be wondering “what the heck is peanut butter doing in a green smoothie?” The answer? I have no idea. I only know how it tastes, and that is really awesome.
