Lately, my husband and I have jumped on the bandwagon of making ‘green’ smoothies every morning. The recipe we typically use (or some variation of it) was from a good friend, who swears these smoothies are the best thing. ever. You can find that recipe here. Today, because I had avocados that were on the cusp of becoming non-edible, I decided to change up our normal recipe and add some avocado to the fun. This smoothie is packed full of yummy, nutritious, and simple ingredients! It’s gluten free, dairy free, and awesome.
First, gather all your ingredients.
1 cup almond milk* (I make mine homemade, you can use store bought, too).
1 TBSP ground flaxseed
2 hand fulls of spinach
3-4 ice cubes, or crushed ice
Next, throw all your ingredients into the blender. If you don’t have a vitamix, do yourself a favor and start saving now. Or ask Santa for one. It is an amazing, powerful machine that will make your heart flutter.
Blend it up until nice and smooth….
And there you have it! A delicious, healthy, and green way to start your day! Packed full of omega 3s, fiber, protein, vitamins, and HEALTHY fats! Enjoy!
