Today we are going to enjoy a special smoothie that is packed with greenness and gets more of its protein from almonds. To get thing prepared you will want to peel whole bananas, and freeze in plastic resealable bags. When you’re ready to make a smoothie, just break one into chunks.
So without further ado, here is the Fresh Spinach and Almond Smoothie.
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1 medium frozen banana, broken into pieces
1.2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbs. raw almonds or 1 Tbs. almond butter
1 tsp. agave nectar (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. almond extract
Place all ingredients in blender, and bland until smooth.
