SWEET GREEN SMOOTHIE

SWEET GREEN SMOOTHIE

A Green smoothie is a great quick breakfast option that leaves you feeling healthy and virtuous.  This smoothie has a smooth texture and a great, sweet taste. You won’t taste the spinach or kale!

I go through stages of food obsessions, especially for breakfast.  Sometimes, I have to have an egg on a piece of whole-wheat toast, other times I am obsessed with oatmeal bowls or an egg, sausage, and grits bowl.  The list goes on and on.  

In between stages, I find that I usually go back to a cold, sweet smoothie.  This one is one of my favorites. It is sweet and the texture is very smooth.

WHAT IS THE BASE FOR THIS QUICK BREAKFAST?

One of the best things about this smoothie recipe is how customizable it is.  Use the fruits that you have in your freezer or refrigerator.

  • Frozen fruit.  This is what will make your smoothie thick and cold.  
  • Green leafy vegetable – spinach, kale, or any green leafy vegetable.
  • Herbs for extra flavor.  I love mint, but lemongrass, basil, even parsley would add nutrients and flavor.
  • Avocado – just a little bit for some healthy fat, which will keep you satisfied.  It also adds a smoothness that is delicious.
  • Liquid of some kind – almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk, green tea, or any kind of juice

Make things easier on yourself by slicing and freezing snack bags of fruit.  This one small step makes a huge difference.

ADDITIONS AND VARIATIONS

  • Seeds are so healthy and delicious.  Try chia or flax seeds.
  • Skip the avocado and add 1 tablespoon MCT oil
  • A scoop of protein powder 
  • Make a tropical smoothie with frozen pineapple, spinach, frozen coconut chunks, coconut milk
  • Strawberries, kale, avocado, basil, and almond milk
