Basic Green Monster Smoothie

This is my absolute favorite smoothie! It's so simple and packs a nice big serving of greens without any yucky taste. It's also easily adaptable - you can throw peanut butter in it or maybe some frozen berries. Personally I like the basic version the best. The best part - it's filling. This can normally hold be over for at least 3 hours, and I'm an EATER - meaning I LOVE to eat. So that says a lot.

Helpful tip - peel ripe bananas and wrap in foil and freeze for use in your smoothie. That way you don't have to add ice! 

Basic Green Monster Smoothie
1 serving

1 frozen banana
1 to 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
couple large handfuls of baby spinach
Optional Add ins:
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 cup frozen berries

- Add banana and almond milk and any optional add ins to blender.
- Add spinach. I normally just put enough in to fill the blender - loosely packed.
- Blend until creamy and flakes of green are completely blended 3 -5 minutes.
- Feel healthy and proud that you got a serving of veggies in your morning meal and it didn't even taste like it!

Peace, love, green goodness, and happiness!
