Peanut Butter Banana Protein shake (with spinach!)

I’ve begun to crave smoothies and shakes lately….Most likely, its because it getting pretty hot here, and after I work out, I’m SUPER sweaty, and all I want is a cold drink. Smoothie are the best, because they are full of things that are great for your body and help you recover. Protein shakes especially are great after an intense workout such as running or pilates like I did today.

3 tablespoons peanut butter
