Today I thought I'd share a smoothie recipe with you that I've been enjoying lately. Smoothies are a great way to get your green leafy vegetables and a great quick breakfast on the go. You won't even taste the spinach in this one, I promise! Add some warming spices this time of year and it makes a cold smoothie less of a shock to the digestive system. Or just really crank the heat in the car on the way to work like I do. ;-) Here's the recipe (All measurements approximate. Adjust to your appetite and tastes.): 1 cup baby spinach1 cup almond milk(Be sure to read your labels and stay away from brands that contain chemical additives. If you're really ambitious make your own!)1/2 cup frozen mango chunks1 heaping tablespoon almond butterPumpkin pie spices to taste(nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and especially ginger!)
If you have the holy grail of blenders you can probably just throw it all together and blend. Otherwise put your spinach, spices and some of the almond milk in first and give it a blend. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
Let me know what you think in the comments or at the studio!
