Green Monster Protein Smoothie {6 WW+}

Pin It

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.

  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!!!

    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!

    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?
