Green Monster Protein Smoothie {6 WW+}

Green Monster Protein SmoothieThere’s one thing I’ve been obsessed about for months. Something that’s healthy for me that I actually crave at times. And you’ll think I’m crazy, but they really are good. What am I talking about? This green monster protein smoothie.

No, seriously… this protein-packed green machine is something I blend up in the morning and enjoy sipping until the very end. I have to thank the frozen banana and teaspoon of PB2 for that.

Haven’t heard of PB2? Well it’s basically powdered peanut butter and is much more calorie friendly than your typical jar of Skippy or Jif. You can find it on Amazon or on select store shelves. You can also find another version from Just Great Stuff that tastes very similar. And? It also comes in chocolate peanut butter form too!

I’ve spotted the Just Great Stuff brand at Target and Whole Foods but there are specialty stores around town that carry PB2 as well. And the protein powder? I pick up the Whole Foods generic brand, 365. It was recommended by a few people and I enjoy the taste.

Oh, and this whole huge 24oz cup? 6 WW+ points! How awesome is that? Definitely a breakfast I can dig before a workout. Then, when I have more time at lunch, I enjoy some scrambled eggs after my workouts.

Green Monster Protein Smoothie

This is an awesome way to get a protein packed breakfast in if you’re on-the-go in the morning and don’t have time to scramble up some eggs!

  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 rounded tablespoon vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon PB2
  • 1/2 frozen banana (fresh is ok too)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup ice
  1. Add ingredients into blender in the order that they’re listed above. Blend until spinach is completely incorporated.
  2. Pour into a cup, stick a straw in it, and drink!

  1. I recently started wanting to do the smoothies because they help with my IC, thanks for sharing a recipe

  2. I have to admit that recipe looks really scary. But, I would give it a try if it’s good for me!

  3. Oh yum! I love green smoothies. You can so much goodness!

  4. I am awful at eating my veggies. This might be a great way to get it done! Thanks for the recipe

  5. Oh I am so happy I stumbled upon your post today! Seriously I just saw that PB2 powder on Amazon last night as I was looking for good options to make my own Weight Watchers smoothies. I wondered how it compared and complimented the WW program. So, Yeah, I’m totally over the moon for this yummy green monster protein smoothie!!!

  6. Oooh, green smoothies seem much scarier than they are. I had no idea PB2 powder existed. I have been hesitant to try “protein” smoothies because so many of the “protein” powders are full of gunk. But the PB2 is NOT!! I love this. Thanks for sharing!

  7. yummy! I make the same one put I have never used protein powder and sometimes I use almond milk vs water makes it nice and creamy.

    • Sometimes when I’m out of skim I do almond too! It’s so tasty. And I have been making these with real peanut butter and no protein powder for a while now but finally realized how much more full I feel with these changes.

  8. So I recently tried a juice cleanse that while the juice wasn’t awful – the whole ordeal was not my thing. This? I could get behind this. It sound delicious. The spinach – fresh baby spinach leaves or frozen spinach? What are you using?

  9. I love Green Machine. Your take on it looks just as delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I love smoothies! I need to put my new blender to use and try this one out!
