Smoothie Tuesday (Pineapple Protein Greens)

So, I was in a bit of a funk and I didn't feel like making anything this week. But I decided to keep up with Smoothie Tuesday!

Today's treat is another Blogilates creation, by the name of the Pineapple Protein Greens Smoothie. Her recipe calls for a banana, a handful of spinach (I used kale), frozen strawberries (I used 15 fresh cherries), pineapple juice (I used a cup of Yoplait's pineapple mango "yogurt & juice"), a scoop of protein powder (I used a tablespoon of JIF natural creamy peanut butter). Similar to when I did the Pomegranate Power Smoothie, my take on this one includes peanut butter and is chock full of substitutions.

But thankfully, it all came together sooo much better this time! The peanut butter smell is tempered by the kale, and its tart creamy sweetness melds perfectly with that of the pineapple "yogurt & juice". This slightly brown-colored smoothie is per.fec.tion, and my favorite that I've made thus far! I can't wait to make this one again!
