• Greenylicious Smoothie

by Buffy Ellen 0 Comments

This is my favourite go-to green smoothie recipe. I've fiddled with this concoction quite a bit (with a few fails at times), but this is my ultimate combo of combos. It's extremely flexible, as long as you have a frozen banana, some fresh greens, and something creamy for your liquid (a plant-based milk, nut butter, or avocado), you're good to go. Although all those superfood extras do make it even more amazing for your body...

I like to make this recipe and jar up the second half pop in the fridge for my partner to guzzle down when he gets home from work. Alternatively you can put the second half in the freezer, then pull out first thing in the morning pop it in the sink it will have defrosted back to it's icy original goodness after a few hours.

Happy smoothie-ing greenies - let me know the various fruit + greens + superfood + milk combos you come up with over on our Facebook page.
