Who doesn’t love smoothies??

So this year I’ve really loved drinking smoothies, eating these amazing vegan recipes and I this one I found online really hit me I LOVED IT! Thought I would share it on here for all y’all! 

Ingredients:

-1/4 ripe avocado

-2 medium ripe bananas, previously sliced and frozen

-1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries (organic when possible) – use strawberries/raspberries for a greener smoothie, darker berries for a purple smoothie

-2 large handfuls spinach (organic when possible)

-1 small handful kale (organic when possible), large stems removed

-1 1/2 – 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (will depend on if your berries are frozen)

-1 Tbsp flax seed meal

-Optional: 2 Tbsp salted creamy almond or peanut butter

TOPPINGS

-Roasted unsalted sunflower seeds

-Granola

-Raw or roasted nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.)

-Shredded unsweetened coconut

-Fresh berries

-Hemp seeds

Instructions:

-Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Add more almond milk (or water) to thin.

-Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more ripe banana (or maple syrup) for added sweetness, more spinach for a bright green hue, or almond milk for creaminess.

-For the green smoothie I used strawberries, which let the green color come through more. For the purple bowl I used darker berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries).

-For more protein, add nut butter! This also offsets / enhances the natural sweetness of the smoothie.

-Divide between 2 serving bowls and top with desired toppings!

-Best when fresh, though leftovers can be kept in jars in the fridge for up to 1-2 days.

Xo,
