It’s Recipe Redux time once again! I missed last month because of
poor planning the holidays and traveling. I’m excited to be back this month for the “fresh starts” theme!
One of our fresh starts began with finally spending money on a good blender. We have been experimenting with all kinds of smoothie combinations using fresh and frozen fruits, milk, water, spices, and greens. I keep referring to Andy’s Smoothies 101 post for tips and ideas.
This combo is one of my favorites so far. If you are wondering why I call it a green smoothie even though it looks purple, it’s because one of the ingredients is spinach. Before you balk at adding greens to your fruit smoothie, let me challenge you to give it a try. If you do it right, all you will taste is the sweetness of the fruit and the smoothness of the milk. Just make sure you blend it up well so that there aren’t any green chunks hanging around (blech!).
Banana Berry Green Smoothie
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 small banana
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup frozen peach slices
- 2 cups organic baby spinach
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds optional
- Dash of cinnamon or nutmeg
- Add all ingredients to your blender in the order that they are listed. Blend until smooth.
