"Sneaky" Smoothie

Submitted by: PDADKINS

Introduction

My son loves to help me make this nutrient-dense smoothie for breakfast. When you include blueberries, veggie-shy kids won't know that the drink is brimming with healthy minerals and extra protein from the greens that have "sneaked" their way into it! The nutritional yeast contributes extra B-vitamins and proteins, and the ground flaxseed provides healthy Omega-3’s. I also use Stevia powder as a natural, sugar-free sweetener, adding no calories and some extra fiber. This recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.

Ingredients

    2 cups unsweetened almond, soy, or rice milk (I use Almond Breeze original, unsweetened)
    1/2-1 cup packed fresh spinach or swiss chard leaves, washed and well-drained
    1 banana, fresh or frozen
    1/2 cup blueberries or mixed berries, fresh or frozen
    1 cup frozen strawberries
    1-2 teaspoons Stevia powder, agave nectar, or maple syrup (optional)
    1 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional)
    1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed (optional)
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Directions

Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth and no specks of the greens remain. Blend in several ice cubes if desired to make thicker. Pour into glasses immediately and enjoy! Makes 2 adult-size servings or 4 kid-size servings.
