NomNom: Peanut Butter Green Smoothie

You guys have no idea how happy I am that it's finally starting to feel like spring <insert happy dance>. This winter was brutal for this area where it just seemed like mother nature just would NOT let go of winter. Rude.

It made me want to stay at home instead of venturing out in the cold and I may have cancelled out on a couple of plans with friends because it was just too dang cold outside to wanna leave the comforts of home. But my friends are the bestest so they get me. It's cool.

The polar vortex brought out the wuss in me, ok?

The freezing weather we experienced also made me want to avoid any sort of cold desserts and drinks and unfortunately my green smoothie game suffered. A bad mix of lazy and rebellion towards anything cold related.

But things are starting to get back on track and I'm back to my green smoothie regimen with a new savory, nutty, and sweet smoothie recipe. My love for peanut butter is next level (especially when there's also banana involved with it) so when I saw that it was one of the ingredients involved, I had to try it. The thing I love about this smoothie is that there are so many awesome layers of flavors that hit your taste buds starting with the banana, a hint of peanut butter, and cinnamon <----game changer for reals.

So who's with me with welcoming Spring with a super healthy and delicious drink of good-for-you-masked-greens? Let'

Have a great week. Xo.
