Green Smoothie Recipe

smoothie recipe

One of my favorite things to boost my immune system is a green smoothie, not only am I am jampacking my cup with vitamins and minerals but I'm also getting a good dose of fruits and veggies! 

We all would like to believe that we eat enough of the good-for-you-foods, but the reality is we're far from what's good for us. Balance is key and of course, always moderation. 

Once you try this recipe out, add some of your favorites and switch them out to create new flavors! 

Ingredients

fruits
  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 avocado, coarsely chopped
  • 1⁄2 banana
  • 1 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (optional)
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon, plus extra to serve (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Process all of the above ingredients along with a handful of ice cubes in a blender until smooth. Serve the smoothie topped with extra cinnamon, if desired.

Note: Almond butter is available from select health-food shops and the health-food section of select supermarkets. If it is unavailable where you shop, substitute unsalted peanut butter. If you are allergic to almonds or do not prefer almond milk, substitute all-natural coconut milk, cashew milk, or any other non-dairy milk of your choice instead.
