Perfect for a snack, pre or post workout, or even breakfast (though personally I would need something a bit more filling).
- 1 banana
- 5 strawberries (about 1 cup)
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp peanut butter, or nut butter
- 1 cup spinach
- Handful of ice – for thickening the smoothie
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
- 1 tbsp flaxseeds (optional)
Blend all of it together! Put the liquid and softer items at the bottom so that it blends together better.
Both seeds I listed are optional, however both have great nutritional contents so, why not add them? The same goes for the spinach; trust me, the first time someone suggest to me to put spinach in a smoothie I thought, ew! Would it even blend up? That would have to taste awful. But in reality, you can’t taste it since there’s so much fruit in it – even it does alter the color a bit. Give it a try, what’s the worst that could happen?! 🙂
