Peanut Butter Banana Metabolism Boost Smoothie

I got a Magic Bullet for my birthday... so now I am on a smoothie kick!  I have found it to be a great way to start off my day healthy and it feels like a treat!  I shared my Berry Banana Brain Boost smoothie yesterday and today I am sharing my metabolism boosting smoothie.  No better way to start then to get your metabolism up for the day! 

Kale, Greek Yogurt and Peanuts are 3 ingredients that help slim your waistline by boosting you metabolism!  So that is the base of this smoothie with only one more ingredient - Banana which also helps the metabolism but is also a great source of potassium (because I get horrible leg cramps!)  Plus the banana masks the taste of the kale.

You will need:
1 Banana
1 tablespoon Peanut Butter (mine is heaping!)
1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 Baby Kale

Put all the ingredients into your smoothie maker or blender and blend until smooth.

Optional: Add ice to make it more of an Icey. 

This also makes a great mid-day snack.

I love sneaking in my veggies into my smoothies. 
 I know I should be better about eating them and this is a great way to do it!

Only way I've ever eaten Kale is in the soup at Olive Garden. Not sure how it even really tastes but not sure I want to find out, lol.
I will need to be drinking more of my meals since I'm losing my teeth due to bone loss. I've already lost all my bottom teeth. Making it harder all the time to find food I can eat that's good for me. I thought I could drink smoothies for breakfast anyway and for a mid afternoon snack. Trying to eat many things with upper teeth and gums isn't really much of option as my gums are gone down there also. Being able to drink smoothies that would keep my metabolism going would be great. Any port in a storm.
The only thing that can be done is implants, that's just not an option for me due to the prohibitive cost of them. No dental insurance.
I was very glad to see your post about smoothies, will print both recipes out. I have a regular blender so hope that will work.
Happy weekend
