Creamy Green Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but I’ve before making this smoothie I’ve¬†always had this aversion to green smoothies. They just always seemed “too healthy” and I know it’s not good to judge food, but they just looked like they wouldn’t taste too good. I mean, vegetables in smoothies? Really?

But the other day I was experimenting in the kitchen with making a green smoothie (I don’t really know why) and when I combined mango, banana, avocado, and spinach, I got a REALLY delicious smoothie!

The avocado and spinach flavor isn’t noticeable at all and I love it!

This smoothie is also pretty thick so it can eaten as a smoothie bowl or just drunk(?) in a mug with some milk added to thin in out.

So sorry green smoothies-y’all deserve some respect.

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen mango or pineapple chunks (I prefer frozen for the texture but fresh fruit would work too)

1/2 of an avocado, pitted

1/2 cup unpacked spinach leaves

1 medium size ripe banana

2-4 tbsp milk of choice to thin out the smoothie

1/4 cup flaxseed (optional)

1 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener (optional)

Directions

Blend all the ingredients until smooth

I also topped mine Lemon Granola.
