My 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Put all ingredients into a high speed blender, I use the Vitamix.
- Blend on high for about 30 seconds
- 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
