After seeing my frequent green smoothie posts on Instagram, a friend recently asked if I would post exact recipes so that she could recreate them at home. In addition to my favorite Banana Walnut Green Smoothie, here’s another delicious smoothie recipe.
After my pickling adventure last summer, I have a lot of extra canning jars lying around. After seeing a lot of people using these for their smoothies I decided to follow suit – it puts those jars to use and it makes for some cute pictures. I also recently got some Ecojarz jar toppers(pictured) to use on these jars when I’m taking my smoothie in the car on my way to work. Paired with these cute glass straws, this is perfect for bringing my smoothie to drink on my way to work.
- cup unsweetened plant-based milk or coconut water
- 1 cup fresh spinach or kale*
- 1 cup berries*
- 1/4 raw almonds
- 1 frozen banana
- 4 fresh pitted dates
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- Keep in mind that strawberries, spinach and kale are on the list of the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables so I would recommend purchasing organic versions of these items.
