They are called smoothie muffins because the basis of a lot of smoothies consist of bananas, a couple handfuls of spinach and some strawberries/other berries.

We just added in some egg and flour and viola – SMOOTHIE muffins!

Plus the base of the muffins are made in a blender, just like a smoothie!

Some of you might be skeptical, but don’t let the green color deter you. You can’t really taste the spinach, but lucky for you, you can know that it’s in there and healthy for you.

Plus if you eat muffins like I do (muffin queen right here!) you’ll feel great knowing that these are good for you! I even surprised myself and there are ZERO chocolate chips in this recipe.

But I wouldn’t put it pass me to add in some chocolate chips if I felt like I needed it :)

How to Make Green Monster Smoothie Muffins

The recipe is simple to make – 10 ingredients: bananas, spinach, strawberries, all purpose flour, honey, an egg, greek yogurt, baking soda, salt and peanut butter.

You’ll blend the bananas, strawberries, spinach, greek yogurt, honey and peanut butter in a blender until everything is smooth, you don’t want chunks!

Then you’ll add in the egg, flour, baking soda and salt. These smoothie muffins bake up fast and I bet they will disappear fast too!
