"HEY GOOD LOOKIN'! WHAT YA GOT COOKIN'...?" Can anyone finish up the line from good 'ol Hank?! Yes, no?? Leave it in the comments.
So what's crackin' y'all?? Well today, we're gonna get our blend on! Yep, that's right. Last week I was all about my morning blend. I've been getting a ton of love on my breakfast smoothies from my IG feed and decided it was about time that I OFFICIALLY shared my recipe here on 'le blog.
Today I wanted to share my basic green monster smoothie. I am in LOVE with this smoothie because it is super quick and simple and I don't have to think about it. I love using frozen fruits because I do not need to add in ice which ends up watering it down. The bananas in the frozen fruit mix that I use help to make the smoothie "creamier" without the added dairy. If I'm feeling a little jazzy, I'll add in extra fresh fruits or veggies I have in the fridge (such as kiwi, lime, ginger, chia seeds, flax seeds, etc.), however this is my base and go-to.
PS: I am a firm believer in using recipes as a guide and then putting your personal flair and taste preferences into your food, so please use this as a guide and a base and add in your own crazy goodness!!
GREEN MONSTER SMOOTHIE:
2 handfuls of frozen fruit (I use Target's tropical frozen fruit blend: peach, mango, pineapple and banana)
Spinach and or Kale
Agave or Honey
Add in your fruit to your blender. Load up the rest of the blender with spinach/kale goodness. Add in enough water so that the fruit doesn't get stuck while mixing (you'll figure out how much once you make enough of these - you can always adjust!). Squeeze in a little (or a lot until you are used to the "green" taste) of honey or agave. BLEND BLEND BLEND.
Do you have a go-to breakfast smoothie? What is in yours?
