Spinach Banana Smoothie Muffin:
Spinach Banana Smoothie is a healthy green smoothie recipe for breakfast. I make spinach banana strawberry smoothie for my breakfast. Smoothies are excellent breakfast on hot summer, but when the weather is cold I don’t even feel like drink it in the morning. So I made the green muffins with banana and spinach that is similar to the green breakfast smoothie that works better on cold winter days. Also, it is an excellent way to incorporate spinach in kids diets. My little son doesn’t even know this muffin has spinach in it. He totally enjoyed a soft and moist spinach muffin for his breakfast.

Smart Cooking Tips:
- Use ripe banana in this recipe, it helps to give a natural sweetness, flavour and aroma to the muffins.
Make sure to melt the butter thoroughly before mixing with the batter. Otherwise, it will form a lump in the muffin.
I added 3/4 cup of sugar in this recipe. Adjust adding it according to your taste. You can also replace the sugar with honey.
- Make sure to blend the banana and spinach until smooth using mixer or blender before adding it to the flour.
Adding Pecans is purely your option, but it gives a crunchy taste in the muffins.
Make sure to cool the muffins thoroughly before you taking it out from the muffin pan.
