For my birthday last year, my aunt (one of the few other health nuts that I know) got me a Nutribullet blender and honestly it has been a game-changer. I use it all of the time, and I usually find that no matter what I end up putting in it, it turns out delicious LOL.
For awhile, I have really wanted to get into the whole green smoothie craze, but I could never find the perfect ingredients and ratios to create a perfect green smoothie that is both super healthy and nutrient dense, and also satisfies my sweet tooth.
I thought, who better to ask for advice than the smoothie queen herself, my aunt! So here is the green smoothie recipe my aunt gave me that I have been loving for awhile now, with just a couple of modifications to make it a tad sweeter;)
Super refreshing and energizing, and no added sugar!
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup cucumber
- 1/4 cup pineapple
- a pinch of ginger
- 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Mix it all up in your blender and add some ice if you would like, and you are all set!
