My all-time favorite. My go-to. This smoothie is everything.
Oh the green smoothie.. Before I had it for the first time I struggled thinking that the ingredients wouldn’t blend well and that it would taste weird. Nothing worse then spending a fortune on fresh veggies only to be dumped down the sink when no one will drink them. So nervously I whipped up this green smoothie that I found on Pinterest and it was…good (not great) but had great potential. Over the years I tweaked the recipe and found what would best accommodate my family’s taste buds and let me tell you…SO dang good. And getting my kids to drink veggies is an accomplishment in itself. It’s creamy, filling, and delicious. I will have it for breakfast or lunch at least once a week and the whole fam loves it.
Since it’s Christmas time we will call this little green smoothie…
Grinch Juice // ( I don’t measure when I make this so it’s just kind of thrown together but it’s always delicious!)
Vanilla Almond Milk 1 cup
1-2 diced frozen bananas
Handfuls of Spinach leaves (you can’t have too much)
Peanut Butter 1 Tablespoon (or PB2 if you’re feeling healthy)
Ice to your liking
Once this has blended I like to add the secret ingredient (thanks to C) – Cocoa Nibs. They give it a little crunch and they are SO good. My kids think there are chocolate chips in their drink. It’s practically a chocolate peanut butter smoothie that’s healthy!
There you have it. Get blending! My favorite purchase this year has been our Blendtech Blender. Need to welcome a blender into your kitchen? Williams-Sonoma has a great collection and free shipping! Find them here.
