Have you jumped onto the green smoothie bandwagon yet? I've tried before but was unsuccessful for two reasons. 1. I didn't have a good enough blender to get the greens completely pulverized. 2. I shamefully admit that I just didn't like them that much. What respectable eater of a mostly whole foods plant based diet doesn't like green smoothies? I was ashamed of myself! Well I can now say with relief that I've joined the green smoothie club with my beginner's recipe I recently came up with, and now I'll share it with you so you can join the club as well. It seems that most people do green smoothies for breakfast, but I've found that I love them as an afternoon snack. You know that time around two or three in the afternoon when you hit an energy slump and crave sugar? This will provide you with enough sweetness to satisfy that craving and give you real energy to make it through the rest of your day!
The Amateur Green Smoothie
1 frozen banana
Handful frozen pineapple
This is obviously just a simple base that can be added to and/or adapted. I hope you try it, love it, feel great, and begin incorporating green smoothies into your diet every day!
