I love this little guy! He’s so Yummy!
I lnow what you mught be thingking that that drink is GREEN!
I used to be like you…the green really threw me off…but don’t be a COLORIST! Lol! jk!
It’s super tasty.
What’s awesome is this is so customizable! You can use different fruits and veggies and make it your own! I’ll give you all approximate amounts, but really you can add as much as you want.
Step 1: A BLENDER!!! (LOL)
Actually, A Banana!
Slice, or just break it into chunks.
AAAAAAAANNNNND Note! If your banana is black-ish, you will taste it in your smoothie. Just Saying….
And I suppose you could use any soft fruit here or skip it if you want, but I think the banana really helps thicken it up.
Step 2: Add Juice! (1/2-1 cup)
I prefer a tropical blend, but you can use whatever. Make sure that it’s a fruit that will blend well with the other fruits you put in your smoothie….
Oh and the top of this carton says: Yeah…LOL’s…. It’s like my mom trying to make a social reference…
Step 3: Spinach!! (A handful….or whatever)
There are like A TON of different greens you can use in this step! Like Bok Choy, Parsley, Kale, Cucumber, Avacados (ok that’s not a leafy green thing, but you get the idea)
Step 4: Yogurt! (About 1 cup)
The suggestion was originally plain greek yogurt. Yuck. No Offense. On the Plain, not the Greek.
I use Vanilla yogurt. You can use what ever you like. And if you do choose to use plain yogurt, of any kind, and you find it’s not sweet enough you can add honey.
Step 5: Frozen Fruit! (About 1 cup….I Think….)
Again you can use what ever kind you want. Use frozen fruit because it will make your drink cold and ice-y without the ice. Ya know how sometimes blended ice will float to the top and make it more slushie-ish? Well frozen fruit wont. 🙂
So go have fun and make your own smoothie!!
