Green Smoothie

Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Introduction

Use kale instead of spinach if you're feeling extra brave! (You can't taste the greens at all, I promise!) Add frozen berries or other frozen fruit for a twist. I am lactose intolerant and allergic to peanuts, but you can use regular milk and peanut butter, too!
Add 1/4 c oat bran for more "staying power." These keep me fueled through lunchtime!

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    2 large handfuls fresh spinach
    1 large frozen banana, cut into chunks
    1 T almond butter
    1 c Almond Breeze or soymilk
    6 ice cubes

Directions

Place spinach and milk in blender. Start on low and move up to high. Add almond butter and banana and blend on medium, shifting to high when it starts to come together. Add ice cubes and pulse a few times, then blending until thick.
This is like a milkshake for breakfast. The cocoa powder masks the green color, and the banana and other additions mask the green flavor.
Enjoy!
