Yo, smoothies are pretty much a great way sneak fresh greens into our diet when we’d rather drink a shake than eat a salad. I don’t often feel like eating a salad- at least not on its own, I don’t know why. Guess I just think salads taste better on burgers. This smoothie is nice to start the day with, because as a protein-type Fool, I appreciate a drinkable boost.
Groovy Smoothie (serves 2)
- 2 Large handfuls of berries
- Handful of greens
- 1 banana
- sprinkle of chia seeds
- 6 ice cubes
- 1/2 c keifer or yogurt
- Large spoonful of nut butter (optional)
- warm water or juice to taste (particularly if using frozen berries)
- honey to taste (if not using sweet yogurt…or IF!)
You know what’s weird? I’ve even used leftover salad from the night before, snuck it into the morning smoothies, and it was pretty effen good yall. BUT. The salad had a ginger vinaigrette dressing….not Ranch. Sometimes I like my smoothies more savory, sometimes I like them more sweet. Depends.
