Happy New Year! What better way to kick off the new year than with a green smoothie that's obviously healthy for you but it's delicious as well. You can add in some flax, hemp, or chia seeds for a boost of extra healthy goodness and it won't impact the taste.
Snickerdoodle Green Smoothie
1 handful of spinach
1/2 of an avocado
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Place all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and have it right away.
Strawberry Banana Milkshake
This is a quick, simple drink. The reason that I'm sharing this is because I like my milkshakes thick but I don't want the added calories of ice-cream to get that texture. The trick to a thick and rich milkshake is to use frozen fruits.
I usually wash, cut and freeze little zip lock bags of fruits for a smoothie and then pop them in to a blender in the morning along with milk, yogurt, various seeds etc or whatever it is that I'm feeling like that morning and voila- no trip to Timmies to grab something full of sugar fat and calories.
1 banana, frozen
1/2 cup strawberries, frozen
1 cup skim milk
1 tbsp flax seeds
Pop the fruits and seeds into the blender along with the milk and blend it all into a smooth consistency.
I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
