I've been obsessed with smoothies lately. Obsessed. Smoothies like this have been floating around the internet for a while now, so I finally decided to make my own version and boy, am I glad I did.
I whip one up for breakfast every morning, [leave the blender in the sink for Ben to deal with], and start my day off healthy. Plus, it's super filling. Usually, I eat breakfast and find myself hungry again an hour or two later, but with this thing, I'm all set until lunch. No more unhealthy office snacking for me.
Ben whines about having to clean our blender so much, but I totally think it's worth it. Especially for how easy it is. Go ahead and make one and let it change your life.
If you wanted to use regular milk instead of soymilk, I'm sure that would work fine too, but I'm just trying to limit my dairy to see if it helps clear up my skin. And as for the spinach, don't be freaked out! I'd never eaten it before, but decided to buy a bag at the market last time and throw it in because I know how good it is for you. It turns the smoothie a little green, depending on how much you put in, but it doesn't change the taste at all. I pinkypromise. I'm the pickiest eater, but I love this smoothie, spinach and all. And just ignore my brown banana. It wasn't mushy, I promise.
Ta da! This is the end result. I was at the end of my bag of spinach, so it's not as green as usual, but still dang delicious.
I love these things.
