PLWF Green Smoothie

PLWF Green Smoothie

 

 

This is THE green smoothie recipe. Super creamy and not at all tasting of the spinach, kale, & avocado (the WHAT?!) which reside in it!

Avocado

If you told me a few years ago that I would be consuming green colored beverages on a daily basis, I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Now I can’t get enough green in my smoothies! Adding any greens (spinach, kale, collard greens, lettuce) to your smoothies is a quick and easy way to get in those extra nutrients.

If you’re just starting to try out adding leafy greens to your smoothies, this is the recipe for you! I highly recommend beginning with lettuce and/or spinach, as they have the least bitter/intense flavors.

I LOVE creamy smoothies, so bananas are a must in all my smoothies. Plus, they’re super sweet for natural sweetener! Adding the avocado adds the healthy fats to the smoothie, and makes it even more deliciously creamy!

Recipe type: Drinks & Smoothies
Serves: 1-2
Ingredients
  • 1-2 Frozen Banana(s)
  • Handful Spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • ½ Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (homemade is best!)
  • ¼ Avocado
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
  • ⅓ Cup Frozen Mango or Peaches
  • Handful Kale, if desired
  • ½ inch piece of Fresh Ginger Root, if desired (gives it a serious spicy kick!)
Instructions
  1. Blend together (high speed blender preferable for utmost creaminess!) frozen banana, peach/mango, spinach/kale, (ginger root), & almond milk.
  2. Add avocado & ground flax seed. Blend in.
  3. If desired, top with Dried Unsweetened Coconut Flakes, Cacao Nibs, or Granola - Crunch = Yummy!
  4. Enjoy!

 

I hope you love it as much as I do! Like all smoothies, the measurements don’t have to be exact. You can play around with amounts to get the perfect flavor and texture for you! More banana will increase creaminess & sweetness. More avocado will increase creaminess, but too much may be bitter. More spinach will decrease creaminess and make it a bit more gritty. Do whatever you want to make it your own!

And as always, feedback is welcomed! Cheers to green dranks!
