Banana Smoothie Muffins

I love to start my day with a delicious smoothie!  Those of you who have been following this blog for a while an attest to that.

I've shared some of my favorites with you right here:  The Monster Smoothie, The Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie, and The Apple-Kale Smoothie.  It's the perfect way to get protein, veggies, and fruit in your breakfast.  Plus, I can drink them during the car ride to work.

But, sometimes I wake up late and don't always have time to get my smoothie together-- so when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be perfect for those days.

Banana Smoothie Muffins-- complete with spinach, bananas, and strawberries!  Delicious and easy to grab on the way out the door.  Plus, they're easy to make!
