Alas, a blogger’s dilemma. I had this post planned to include two green smoothies and start with a beautiful green photo collage (pictured above). Enter photo collage tech-issues. My beautiful green collage could not be saved to desktop. Thankfully – a software, not a hardware issue. Knowing I have not yet photographed second smoothie, Do I (a) go ahead and purchase yet another collage program in the App Store and figure out how to get this up looking clear & mucho stunning or do I (b) take a photo of the collage I cannot save w/ iPhone , post that and decide about the second collage program later, as I have not get got my workout in. As you can see, I went with Plan B. Although the photo is not 100% clear, sometimes you have to jam. If you wait for perfect — post never gets done. The other smoothie is especially glad, as it will not have to share the limelight with this one.
So down to business! Can’t believe its been a month since I have posted….but with the Spring Equinox ahead of us this week (Tuesday, 3.20) and St. Patrick’s Day behind us….perfect time to get our green on! Here is a super delicious, 5 ingredient green smoothie to kick it into high gear this spring. As always, dairy-free. The is an homage to my recent trip to Austin, which incidentally is consistently rated in the top 10 as one of the Greenest Cities in the US. Shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as it is the home to the MotherShip…aka…Holy Grail of food shopping and a green foodie’s heaven.
This Super Green Smoothie has only 5 ingredients : Kale, Spinach, Banana, Almond Butter and Almond Milk….
Super Greens Smoothie
Kale – big handful
Spinach – big handful
2 frozen Bananas
2 cups Almond milk
2 tbsp Almond butter
Blend all in Vitamix…and remember….when the going gets tough, the tough go green. xo
