The Green Smoothie is one of my favorites because it's filled with substance! Smoothies are endless, so please, don't let this one be it for you, although it is a staple for me because the ingredients and measurements are locked into my brain. Here's the one I demonstrated last night at the class.
1 banana (this makes it creamy)
a handful of spinach (or any leafy green)
1/2 cup frozen fruit (berries will turn it into a different color, but still delicious!)
3 tbsp. hemp seeds
2 tbsp. flax seeds
almond milk to desired consistency
a pinch of cinnamon
Blend until smooth!
I enjoy this as my entire meal for breakfast. I haven't touched coffee in years and yet, I don't have that 1 o'clock tired feeling. My daughter really enjoys these as well. The picture above was of her over a year ago drinking a smoothie. This one was made with blueberries.
