Description

This superfood green smoothie is packed with nutrition to really get your day started!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas (make sure they are ripe!)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups frozen mango
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 tbs coconut sugar (we like organic Khadrawy dates when we can get them)
  • 1 tbs ground flax seed
  • 1 cup unsweetened, unflavored plant milk (almond, soy, cashew – you can also use water)

Instructions

  1. Grind your flax seeds in a coffee grinder for 10-15 seconds
  2. add plant milk (or water) to blender (a Vitamix works great)
  3. add flax and coconut sugar (or dates)
  4. blend for about 30 seconds on high
  5. turn off blender and add spinach, bananas, avocado, and mango (in that order)
  6. blend on high for 30 – 45 seconds
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

  • The avocado thickens the smoothie, particularly if it is frozen.
  • We love the organic dates that we can get and use coconut sugar when they are sold out. Dates add another level to the nutritional makeup of the smoothie for sure!
  • This makes a LOT! So, for some of you it may be a smoothie for two. 🙂
