I loveeee green smoothies, and I love that DOLE has added all of these amazing new Power Up Greens to their lineup. I usually do a lot of fruit and veggie green smoothies, but this week I decided to try a different type of green monster smoothie from my fellow DOLE buddy, Kristin from Iowa Girl Eats! I love the addition of Greek yogurt and peanut butter in her smoothie recipe! It tastes so good, yet it’s so good for you!
DOLE’s new Power Up Greens ‘Baby Kale & Greens’ is loaded with baby spinach, baby kale, baby green chard, and baby red chard. This combination of dark leafy greens provides the perfect lineup for bold flavor and nutrition. With vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, manganese and calcium, this blend is a perfect way to power up by adding a boost of nutritious flavor to soups, smoothies and more.
During the launch of DOLE Power Up Greens, DOLE sent me an adorable smoothie tumbler so I can power up on Green smoothies all summer long. They also sent me a super cute salad green yoga mat and custom DOLE earbuds for my workouts! They’re the perfect power up workout accessories!

I seriously just made a green smoothie, sat down, opened up blogloving and found your recipe 🙂 Mine has protein powder instead of Greek yoghurt, but the recipe looks delicious 🙂

PB in smoothies is so good! And it adds a healthy dose of good fats and protein.

I absolutely love your blog. I found it I think through one of your recipes I found on Pinterest. I can relate to a lot of things here. As a fellow graphic designer, but from the East Coast :), I also have been struggling with weight loss/ thyroid problems for a few years. I guess it’s just nice to know that you aren’t alone with these problems and hearing other people’s stories is really inspirational! 🙂 I love all of your recipes (especially the smoothies, because I have been on a breakfast smoothie kick for a few weeks now)Keep the posts coming and I can’t wait to hear more of your journey!!! I can’t thank you enough.

I tried this smoothie and it is SO GOOD! My boyfriend loves anything with peanut butter but was a little skeptical since this has kale, spinach, and chard in it, but he loved it too! We also added some chocolate protein powder since neither of us like Greek yogurt and it worked really well! Thanks Catherine for all of your smoothie recipes – keep ’em coming!

I can’t stand the smell or taste of bananas, so what would be a good substitution for bananas in your smoothie recipes?
