Smoothie Time!!

20140218-082249.jpg

Good morning!!! So, I know I am not alone in saying that I don’t always like to eat breakfast.(sometimes due to lack of time!) Now there are many discrepancies on whether you should or shouldn’t, but ill save that for another post! Me personally, I don’t like to eat breakfast, but then by 11 or so am I’m looking around for either something quick or something sweet!!!! Ugh, aka the devil! So instead of cooking up some eggs & bacon, I’ve been trying to make some smoothies! Not only are they easy and quick & perfect for taking on the road, they are packed with vitamins, nutrients & healthy fats!!! (Depending on the components you choose) Anyway, I’ve been trying to think of some concoctions that include more veggies than fruit so I’m not taking in toooooo much sugar! This morning my goal was spinach, (I’m doing beets next! Yum!!) here is the recipe, (I didn’t measure, but ill try to break it down for you ;-))

Spinach Banana Smoothie:

2-3 cups organic baby spinach (or kale)

About a cup (maybe a little more! play with consistency) of unsweetened almond milk (or coconut)

1/2 banana (if you slice & freeze your bananas ahead of time, using those keeps smoothie thick and cold, otherwise I don’t care about temp)

1 tbsp sunflower seed butter

1 tsp of raw honey ( optional, raw honey tends to be sweeter than its processed sister! )

1 tsp (ish) cinnamon (really gave it great flavor!)

* Now here is where you can play around: I chose to add some psyllium husks (fiber), but you can add protein powder, flax or chia seeds, or whatever you want for an extra kick! 🙂

Combine everything in the blender, pulse to liquefy & enjoy!!!!!!!!!
