Green smoothies!

I’m trying (again) to cultivate a habit of a healthy breakfast. This week, I’ve been making a modified version of Reese’s green smoothie.

I’m using only 1 head of romaine, and I swapped the spinach for kale, plus peanut butter, celery, and protein powder. Next batch, I am going to cut back on the lemon as the acidity is not sitting well in the morning.

I thought my husband would like this combo, so I threw some stuff together in my Vitamix as an experiment, and wow, it was really tasty!

Here’s the recipe:

chocolate banana peanut butter coconut smoothie
serves 2


  • 2 cups vanilla light soy milk or any non-dairy milk (even water could work, if you want cut down the calories)
  • 2 scoops Vega Energizing Smoothie in Choc-a-lot flavor
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 generous scoop peanut butter (I used homemade peanut butter, another great thing you can make with a Vitamix!)
  • 4-5 coconut water ice cubes (just freeze coconut water in your ice-cube trays to make)
  • Roasted coconut flakes


  • Combine all ingredients except the roasted coconut flakes in a blender, and blend until creamy and smooth.
  • Pour into 2 large smoothie glasses and top with roasted coconut flakes.
