There are a million ways to start your day with vegetables! Maybe you don't want to gobble down a handful of cauliflower as you rush out the door. But what if you tossed a handful of spinach into your morning smoothie? Trust me here: You won't taste these nutrient-packed leaves. They will turn your smoothie an interesting shade of green, but if you can handle squatting heavy weight, you can probably handle a strange-looking drink.


  • 8 fl oz water
  • 1 scoop(s) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 2 cup spinach
  • ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
