1 medium ripe banana
6 strawberries, green parts cut off
3 raw broccoli florets, stems cut off
6 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
- In a blender or food processor, add the banana, washed strawberries, washed broccoli florets, yogurt, and peanut butter. Blend until smooth. This makes a thick smoothie, so if you prefer a thinner consistency, add a little soy or skim milk. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.
Makes one serving.
