After School Smoothie

Ciao everyone!

So, I don't know about how this goes down in your house, but let me tell you something about mine...

When people get home from school around here, there are a few inevitable occurrences that will take place:

1- Someone will be eating a banana
2- Someone will be getting a lovely spoonful of fresh peanut butter
3- That same someone will be combining them in a very happy bowl and become a much more amiable person thereafter;)

Now, if I am that someone, the likelihood of banana vs. apple is about a 50/50 chance.

If my sister is that someone, the likelihood of banana vs. apple is pretty much 100% banana. Every time.

But with all this talk I've heard about the amazing nutritious qualities of green smoothies, I was left with no choice but to think about making a new creation:

The After School Smoothie
Lots of fresh spinach
Half a medium banana
Half a medium apple
About 3/4 cup non dairy milk
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
Optional: chia or flax seeds (no difference in flavor; just a nutritional boost)

1) Stuff as much spinach as possible into the blender. Slowly pour milk over it. Blend.
2) Add rest of ingredients. Blend.
3) Enjoy:)
Ciao for now!

P.S. Yes, I realize that in this region school is almost out.. but what better time than finals week for epic snacks and fun recipes!:)
