My sons call my smoothies by color- my favorite smoothie is the “brown smoothie” but Declan is partial to my green and my pink smoothies also.
- 1 or 2 bananas
- kale fresh about a cup or a cup of spinach leaves
- 1 tbsp nut butter (peanut or almond are my go-to’s)
- dash of cinnamon
- 3 ice cubes
- unsweetened almond milk to desired consistency
This is also one of my staples. Key here: if using kale let it blend a long time to get the chunks out! kale smoothies can be smooth you just have to blend them longer and make sure there’s enough almond milk. I make sure the liquid line is at or above the food line. The dash of cinnamon makes it delicious. If I have frozen avocado on hand I’ll use that or frozen peaches instead of the ice cubes.
Very versatile, light, yet filling.
People always ask me about protein powder. I don’t use it. I don’t like it. I think it’s too expensive. I’d rather get my protein from my food sources than a powder. I drink this a lot during the Summer by the pool for breakfast.
