Hello Lauren, I found your recipe on Pinterest and saved it to my board that I had created. I have been exploring on Pinterest to try to find healthy shakes and smoothies . I have been trying several smoothies, but I definitely like healthy ones. I actually tried yours today and it was actually very good. I did not use a whole banana, & I used a little bit more peanut butter & almond milk, unsweetened . I am going to look at some of your other recipes. I understand this is healthy for you. Do you have any idea how many calories for one serving? Thanks, Michelle

Hi Michelle! Thanks for visiting my website! I'm so glad you tried one of my smoothie recipes. As far as the calorie count, I currently do not have the nutrition background to post the calorie count, but you can sign up for a free My Fitness Pal account at and enter the recipe in and it will give you a calorie count and a nutritional breakdown! Plus if you are counting calories it is a really helpful tool! Hope you enjoy the other recipes! Thanks, Lauren
