Smoothies are the perfect breakfast or anytime snack. Loaded with nutrition, smoothies can be totally customized and prepared with little effort.
This smoothie, in particular, is one of my favorites because if its gingery zing and refreshing flavor. I also added spinach for extra nutrients (and I love the fresh green color!)
I like to use a mixture of frozen bananas with other fresh ingredients, so crushed ice is not needed (it makes smoothies watery). By using freshly frozen chopped bananas, I never waste fresh fruit and always have a great smoothie base on hand.
Gingery Green Smoothie
1 frozen chopped banana (buy fresh banana, chop, and put in the freezer)
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 heaping tbsp chopped ginger
1 medium gala or fuji apple, cored and chopped (I like to leave the skin for flavor)
1 cup of almond milk (depends on your consistency preference; add more if needed)
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
Using a blender, combine all ingredients until completely smooth. Enjoy!
