Green Smoothie

One would think that a smoothie stuffed with spinach would taste like… well, spinach.  One would be wrong.  No matter how much spinach I shove in the blender, the smoothie still tastes like almond butter, strawberries, bananas and yumminess.
I don’t really have a recipe for this delicious drink meal, but here are the general guidelines that I follow.
Green Smoothie
- 1-2 handfuls of baby spinach
- 1 banana
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 10 frozen strawberries, or 10 frozen strawberries and a few ice cubes
- a sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1-2 cups almond milk
1. Combine ingredients, through cinnamon, in blender and crush.
2. Slowly add almond milk until smoothie has reached desired consistency.

*This recipe is easily altered and adapted to taste.  Just keep spinach (or kale if you’re courageous) as your base and build from there.
