Avocado Strawberry Smoothie

Spinach-packed smoothies like this one are the real deal. But don’t be turned off by its green hue—all you’ll taste is banana and creamy peanut butter with a hint of honey. And since it’s made using either almond or soy milk, it’s completely vegan (just like these meat-free breakfast ideas).
