Great Green Smoothies

Just want to share that my new favorite small appliance is the NutriBullet blender. I have enjoyed making green smoothies for quite some time, but this blender is able to do the job in mere seconds! Seconds, I tell you.

I don’t typically use a recipe, aside from using about the same amount of leafy greens to almond milk, and then I just use a variety of fruit that I have on hand.  There are many great recipes for healthy and delicious smoothies, but you can’t go wrong with  The All in One Guide to Making a Green Smoothie at Positive Health Wellness.

Ingredients to make two smoothies:

  • 1 1/2 cups leafy greens
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 2 – 3 cups fresh fruit
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon

Today, I’m using baby spinach and kale, pear slices, pineapple chunks, a whole banana, blueberries, almond milk, a shake of cinnamon and about a tablespoon of chia seedsIMG_7921Throw all the ingredients in this bad boy and turn it on. Thirty seconds or so does the job with no leafy chunks at all. IMG_7922Easy, dreamy, and delicious! I bet you’ll be hooked too!
