my go-to green smoothie.

02/13/2018

I’ve always had good intentions of having a green smoothie for breakfast, but when it came down to it, it was easier to just pop some sprouted bread in the toaster and slather on some sunbutter instead. Lugging the Vitamix out just felt like too much work, too. And forget an ice cold smoothie in the middle of a Minnesnowta winter! 

But then I saw Beth‘s daily green smoothie in a recent insta story, and it sounded so good and easy to make. And the perfect way to actually use an entire container of spinach from Costco! (Please tell me we’re not the only ones who can’t finish an entire container before it goes bad.) I modified her recipe a bit and voila – my daily green smoothie, and a little taste of the tropics. 

Luma loves green smoothies, too 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup unsweetened almond milk 
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 avocado 
fresh spinach – as much as you can stuff in your blender
large knob ginger, peeled (1 tbsp powdered ginger works, too)
4 tsp cacao nibs, if you like 

INSTRUCTIONS

Add all ingredients to your blender and mix until smooth. Makes enough for 1-2 servings, depending on how hungry you are (I always eat the entire smoothie for breakfast!). Enjoy! 

Other delicious variations – swap out the mango for frozen pineapple (or use both!), add a scoop of pure clean powder, throw in some fresh kale, a knob of fresh turmeric, or some protein powder for an extra boost.
