Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 cup spinach or baby kale
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)
  • 2 tbsp chunky peanut butter
  • ¼ cup raw cacao
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (cow, soy, almond, coconut, etc)
  • 1 cup water
  • ice
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in blender except ice in order given.
  2. Blend well, until ingredients are well mixed and greens are pulverized. Add ice and blend until desired consistency.
Notes
- A powerful blender makes this incredibly smooth.
- Natural peanut butter is really good in this.
-If you don't have chunky peanut butter, use creamy and add peanuts. The texture of the nuts really helps make the smoothie taste and feel like brownie batter.
-To save money and get more out of the recipe, I pour it into a quart mason jar, then add a little water to the empty blender and whirl again to get the last of the ingredients out. I put that in with the rest of the smoothie and mix with a spoon.
-You can freeze these and make Brownie Batter Fudgsicles! Does it get any better???
