This is one of our go-to smoothies! We almost always have the ingredients on hand, and when I need an easy and delicious smoothie, this one gets made. It tastes amazing if I do say so (but I may be a little bias) and is packed with antioxidants from the berries, spinach, and chia seeds. I also use almond butter to add in some protein.
This smoothie is a great addition to any meal, or can be the perfect snack. I typically add a plant based protein powder to mine, so if you’re adding protein powder you can even have this as your meal. An added bonus is that both my kids really like this one so I don’t have to wonder if they will drink it! It’s always hit or miss with how much they will actually drink though (this goes for all smoothies). Sometimes it’s a couple of sips, and sometimes it’s half a glass-full. As I write this post they are 4 & 2, so even a few ounces is a win in my book. But with everything, I keep offering it to them and get pretty excited on the days when they actually drink a good portion of it!
Smoothie tip: Use frozen bananas if you have some available. This keeps the texture smooth and creamy and the temperature cold. I really dislike needing to put ice in my smoothies as it totally changes the consistency and makes it more “icee” like and watered down. So, grab some ripe bananas and throw them in the freezer! I break mine into quarters before freezing (peeled) so I can quickly grab a couple when needed.
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend for about 1 minute, or until all ingredients are fully mixed and a creamy smoothie has been created. Drink and enjoy!
