Vegan, Gluten Free, Nut Free, Soy Free
This smoothie is amazing. It's so healthy and shocking to the taste buds. The ingredients may seem weird, but trust me- it's delicious!
- 1 cup unsweetened original or vanilla almond (or soy) milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup of spinach (optional, but suggested because it's an easy way to sneak vegetables in!)
- 1/2 tsp stevia or truvia
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cardomom
- A pinch of freshly ground pepper (do it!)
- 1 tsp cacao nibs
If drinking this for breakfast, I would suggest adding protein, fat, and fiber (like hemp, flax, or chia seeds, or nuts/nut butters) to make it more filling and stabilizing.
*If you add chia, then you could call it chia-chai smoothie :D Too much fun.
Here are some more green smoothies from the challenge:
(Strawberries, spinach, water, ice, flax, and granola :)
(Frozen banana, strawberries, spinach, almond milk, cacao nibs, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon)
(Water, ice, spinach, frozen banana, chocolate protein powder, PB2, cacao powder, cacao nibs, cinnamon)
I love these smoothies! They're so perfect first thing in the morning to get that chocolate fix while getting in at least one serving of both fruit and veggies! Yay for smoothies!
