Green Smoothie Recipe

 When I switched to a vegan diet, I started incorporating green smoothies into my daily routine. They give me so much energy! I actually ditched my morning coffee and now I start my day with this green goddess. Which is a HUGE deal for me. "Hi, my name is Aisha and I am a recovering coffee addict."  Anywho, you can't taste the spinach or kale at all. So if you're not a huge veg fan, this is the drink for you. Your kids will love it and it's a great way to sneak some veggies into their systems. The benefits to drinking these are endless. I love how much energy I have. My skin and hair are lookin' a lot healthier too! Ok, here's the recipe.

  • A blender
  • 2 cups of spinach or kale
  • 3/4 cup of water or your preferred milk
  • 1 cup of frozen or fresh fruit
  • Ice
  • 1/2 banana
Keep in mind, my blender is small and only makes enough for me. If you want more, double the recipe. You can add peanut butter, coconut, ginger, agave nectar, honey, yogurt, anything you want!

Put everything in the blender and blend away.

Now it is time to enjoy!

What is your favorite smoothie recipe?
