This is a really nice and easy way to get your greens.
Fill your blender or Nutri Bullet in this order
8oz oz of plain Nut or Seed Milk- (home made almond Milk recipe below)* If you do not have nut or seed milk you can sub water. I add coconut oil when I do that to make it creamier
I small handful of ice
1 large hand full of Baby Spinach. Baby spinach can spoil quickly so I usually buy it fresh and then put it straight in my freezer so I always have it for smoothies. Spinach is one of my favorite greens to use because it adds a bit of thickness, is easy to blend and doesn't have a strong taste in smoothies. Of course, spinach is high in fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron,magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese.
1 small grab of green swiss chard- You can freeze this as well. I tend to go light with chard as it can be a bit bitter for some people.
1/2 - 1 Full frozen banana ( Frozen bananas will give you a better texture for your smoothies. Take ripe bananas thinly slice them and keep in your freezer, so you have them available for smoothies. This is also a good way to keep from wasting over ripe bananas. Ripe bananas and fruits in general are more easily digested than unripe).
1/4 of an avocado or a table spoon of coconut oil or butter -(these help to give it a nice creamy texture and load with with great sources of fat)
Fun options or add ins:
*optional 1 teaspoon of cacao powder
*optional 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
*adaptogens or protein powders are good as well
Blend for about 1 minute, until smooth. The more you blend the less thick it will be. If you don't like a thicker smoothie, use less avocado.
