My Morning Ritual

Classic Green MonsterI am hooked on this recipe! This may sound and look a little strange, but this is one of my favorite smoothie recipes. I’ve been drinking it almost every day for many months and I love how it makes me feel. It fills me up and gives me everything I need for a great start to the day and re-energizes me after a workout. The recipe is below.¬†Give it a try!

Classic Green Monster from Oh She Glows
1/2 to 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
2 handfuls of organic baby spinach leaves
1 T of almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
1 T of chia seeds (or flax)
1 peeled, frozen banana (I use 1/2)
3 ice cubes
protein powder (optional)

Classic Green MonsterStart with 1 cup of milk of your choice. Now add in the chia or flax and nut butter. Next, add in the spinach followed by the banana on top. Blend until smooth. Add in your ice cubes and blend some more. Serves 1- about 2 cups. Use a Vitamix if you have one.

How do you start your day?
