While making another one of my favorite smoothies, seeing a bunch of ripe bananas in the kitchen gave me the urge to bake some banana bread. Then a light went off ¡ª why not combine a smoothie recipe with banana bread to make banana smoothie muffins?
Made with pureed banana, spinach, and strawberries, these muffins came out even more deliciously sweet and moist than anticipated. Skeptics might be turned off by the greenish hue, but just like green eggs and ham, “try them, try them,” and this might become your new favorite banana bread recipe.
