Green Smoothie Recipe:
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup baby spinach
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/3 of an avocado or 1 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 cup skim milk
To lower the calories I have been decreasing the amount of peanut butter I've been adding. Lately I have put in the whole tbsp because my local grocery store RAN OUT of avocados! I couldn't believe it! Once they have some back in stock I will use less peanut butter. Personally I like a really thick smoothie. In order to have it more drinkable I would suggest removing the peanut butter and avocado all together and increasing the milk.
I use the magic bullet to blend it.
|before blending, look at that gorgeous spinach!|
I have been wanting to branch out and try other smoothies but I tend to shy away from berries based ones. Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe?
