Blueberry-Banana Green Smoothie

Last year I tried my very first green smoothie.  For those who don’t know, a green smoothie involves a leafy green and sometimes vegetables.  I went safe and used spinach for my first one.  I believe Spinach and Kale are the most commonly used, but with spinach you can easily mask the taste, where I’ve heard that you can’t really with kale.  In the green smoothies I’ve made, I don’t taste the spinach at all.  I haven’t been brave enough to try kale yet.  😉

If you’re new to green smoothies I highly recommend this one.  It’s pretty tame as far as green smoothies go and it’s very tasty!

1 large handful of baby spinach

1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Jay Robb)

1/2 cup blueberries (frozen)

1/2 banana (frozen)

1 packet Truvia (or other sweetener of choice)

1 cup of ice

Tear off the stems of the spinach (optional).  Blend the spinach and the almond milk together fully.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.  Makes about 16oz.
