THE OG GREEN SMOOTHIE

August 27, 2018

 

Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to flush our bodies with tons of nutrients. You can pack TONS of amazing things into a smoothie and make them a serious nutritional powerhouse. I always incorporate fruit, veggies, healthy fats, protein and leafy greens into my smoothie blends. My general recipe formula for a smoothie is 1 cup liquid, 1 serving of fruit, 1-2 tbsp fat (like nut butter or avocado), 1-2 cups leafy greens. I almost always use frozen fruit because it makes the consistency thicker but fresh fruit works well, too. Another trick I like to add extra nutrition to smoothies is to add frozen cauliflower (~1/2 cup) instead of using ice. I promise it adds no flavor and it adds fiber and vitamins while making the smoothie thick and creamy. Below is my go-to green smoothie recipe. I’ve been drinking it for years and I’ll never get sick of it. I hope you love it!

 

 

Ingredients
*1 smoothie

  • 1-1.5 cups fresh spinach

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (you can add more/less depending on your preferred consistency/thickness)

  • 2 tbsp nut butter of choice (peanut butter is my favorite)

  • 1 small frozen banana

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • ½ cup frozen organic cauliflower (you can add more/less for desired consistency)

Optional: Granola for topping!

 

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in your blender.

  2. Blend until smooth and enjoy immediately.
