So I’ve never been too much of a smoothie lover (wild, I know) but lately I’ve been getting into experimenting with different ingredients and things. I try to find ways to pack as many nutrients into my morning smoothies and that usually (*usually) translates to a pretty tasty way to start the day!
Looking to my parent’s freezer for inspiration, I found huge amounts of frozen spinach and thought I’d go for it. Spinach is pretty interesting. It has protein, fiber and tons of vitamins. It also blends in (literally ha!) with other flavors really well.
- 1/2 banana
- 2 tbsp sunflower seed butter- or your nut butter of preference
- a couple of handfuls of frozen spinach
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- splash of water
- 1 green tea bag
- flaxseeds/ chia seeds/ blueberries or whatever goodies you want to sprinkle on top
- basically just blend everything together… oh yeah, cut open the tea bag and pour contents in the blender. add water as needed, break apart spinach if it’s clumpy.
