Warming Green Smoothie

Warming Green SmoothieMy goodness the temperature has dropped.  The fire is now on each day and the dogs are spending more time inside than out.  As the weather has got colder, I have found it quite challenging at times to have a green smoothie. I’ve been wanting something that is nurturing but also warming, which is only right when the fire is blazing. This week I discovered a green smoothie that satisfies these requirements:

  • warming
  • nurturing
  • creamy
  • and oh so yummy

I put everything in the blender and OMG was I impressed with the smoothie. My Spicy Almond Milk recipe was the inspiration for this green smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp mixed spices
  • 1 madjool date
  • 1 – 2 cups of liquid. I use 1 cup almond milk and 1 cup water. If you would like the green smoothie creamier than use less water and more nut milk.

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients into a high speed blender, I use the Vitamix.
  2. Blend on high for about 30 seconds
  3. Pour content a lovely glass and enjoy. If it is sunny outside find a place in the winter sun and savour or sit in front of the fire and watch the flames as you enjoy your green smoothie.

I would love to hear what you think of the smoothie.

In good health, Vicki
