I’ve been indoctrinated since birth to eat sufficient green leafy vegetables.  No outright threats were made should this not occur, but dire consequences were implied.  (Thanks, mom.)  Therefore, my concience is soothed by consumption of a smoothie containing said guards against the evils of poor health.  My particular favorite for smoothies is spinach because you can’t taste it at all.  Here’s how I get my greens in the morning.

Green Smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • 2 Tbsp raw almond butter (crunchy or creamy, different from each other but both good)
  • 1-2 handfuls raw spinach
  • 1 serving protein powder
  • almond milk, sufficient to blend properly

Just throw everything in the blender with the spinach on top for best blending results.  I start with a cup of almond milk and add more if the ingredients won’t turn in the blender.

Drink, enjoy, and feel a little smug at how healthy you are now.
