Green Superfood Smoothie

Green Superfood Smoothie

Note: My cookbook, Delicious Probiotic Drinks, is now available for pre-order!

A smoothie a day has been my modus operandi as of late. Due in large part to smoothies playing a role in the probiotics cookbook, Delicious Probiotic Drinks, I’m writing, there have been all sorts of variations of fruit and green smoothies for me to whip up and taste test. So far, many have been very palatable, while others…not so much.  In light of Saint Paddy’s Day coming soon, I wanted to share one of my favorite green superfood smoothies.

This superfood smoothie is pretty much a well-balanced meal in a glass. It includes spinach (or kale), avocado, blueberries and almond milk which are all nutrient dense superfoods. Plus yogurt (probiotics) and bananas (yum!). The balance of omega fatty acids, protein, vitamins and fructose make for a healthful meal in a cup. And it’s green!

Green Superfood Smoothie

If you’re looking for a tasty and easy way of getting a high concentration of nutrients, particularly in the morning or after a workout, this smoothie is perfect. If you’re looking for something green to drink on St. Patrick’s Day (other than green beer of course), this green smoothie also makes the cut.

So, friends, you can be my little taste testers and tell me: does this smoothie make the cut for my cookbook, Delicious Probiotic Drinks? If you try it, give me your expert or amateur green smoothie opinion!

I love my health supplements from http://www.superfoodberrydrinks.com/. When I run out of them, I try making my own shakes and drinks for a while. I am glad I came across this article of yours! This smoothie is the yummiest I’ve found so far.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I have nut allergies and cannot use almond milk. Any suggestions for a substitute?

Could you use soy milk or coconut milk? Coconut milk would be my preference ;) Let me know if you try it!

I used greek yogurt and frozen blueberries and it turned out great (and packed with protein for post workout).
