Green Smoothie Waffles are delicious breakfast waffles that use the same main ingredients as a green smoothie: spinach, banana and Greek yogurt.
Green smoothies are a delicious, healthy drink. I always end up having bananas that are on the verge of being too ripe. Usually I freeze them to use in smoothies, but I wanted to make something different. I decided to make Green Smoothie Waffles. The waffles contain the same basic green smoothie ingredients: spinach, banana and Greek yogurt. Green Smoothie Waffles are a great way to add some fruit and vegetables to your morning breakfast.
