Green Smoothie

One would think that a smoothie stuffed with spinach would taste like… well, spinach.  One would be wrong.  No matter how much spinach I shove in the blender, the smoothie still tastes like almond butter, strawberries, bananas and yumminess.
I don’t really have a recipe for this delicious drink meal, but here are the general guidelines that I follow.
Green Smoothie
Ingredients
1-2 handfuls of baby spinach
– 1 banana
– 2 tbsp almond butter
– 10 frozen strawberries, or 10 frozen strawberries and a few ice cubes
– a sprinkle of cinnamon
– 1-2 cups almond milk
Directions
1. Combine ingredients, through cinnamon, in blender and crush.
2. Slowly add almond milk until smoothie has reached desired consistency.

*This recipe is easily altered and adapted to taste.  Just keep spinach (or kale if you’re courageous) as your base and build from there.

  1. Back when I was a smoothie crazed high schooler I would have thought adding veggies to a smoothie was crazy, but now I love the idea of packing vegetables into every meal. This looks like a very well rounded smoothie – vitamins, minerals, fruit, veggies, protein. You can't get better than that and I bet it tastes great! Have a fun weekend!
