Emily’s Green Smoothie

22 Jun

I’ve been trying to find a good green smoothie recipe for a while.  Previously my smoothies have been either too bland, too chunky, or contained not enough greens.

This morning I experimented with some ingredients and I think I’ve created my perfect green smoothie recipe.

Emily's Green Smoothie

I really enjoy how green it looks, and I think that the kiwi is key to achieving that color.

Ingredients:

~1 cup unsweetened original almond milk
4 chunks of frozen mango
1 kiwi
1 banana
2 Tbsp ground flax meal
1 Tbsp softened or melted coconut oil
one and a half handfuls of organic baby spinach

Take the mangoes out of the freezer to let thaw.

Peel and slice the banana, and place on a cutting board.  Do the same with the kiwi and place the cutting board in the freezer.

Take a shower, do some dishes, or  just wait for 10 minutes.

Then, take the banana and kiwi out of the freezer and place all ingredients in the blender.

That’s it!

🙂

I’d like to experiment with other ingredients, such as varying the types of fruit or greens in the smoothie (maybe to include celery?).  I’d also like to make a smoothie which contains cocoa powder, or has orange juice as a base.

This recipe provides: manganese, vitamin C
