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!
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!
Green Superfood Smoothie
- 1 in frozen banana chopped small chunks
- ½ cup blueberry yogurt or vanilla yogurt plus frozen blueberries
- 1 cup loosely packed spinach chopped, or kale leaves
- ½ ripe avocado
- ½ cup almond milk
Throw it all into a blender and blend until completely smooth (and thick!)
This smoothie turns out very thick. Add more almond milk if you would prefer a thinner consistency.
