My wife recently asked me to do a 21-day green smoothie challenge with her. The only rules were drinking 32 ounces of a green smoothie per day so I was in.
Mainly we have made the smoothies at home but, on occasion, we will go to Pure Cafe or Jamba Juice. It is really no big deal to replace a meal with a smoothie. At 32 ounces you won’t feel hungry and it is probably better for you than what you were going to eat. So I suggest you give it a… wait for it… whirl.
A little smoothie humor.
So without further ado, here is a smoothie that tastes great, is green and actually tastes great!
Sam’s Cilantro Banana Smoothie
6 Frozen Bananas
3 Cups of Uncooked Fresh Spinach
2 Cup of Uncooked Fresh Cilantro
1/4 Cup Vanilla Protein Powder
3 Cups Vanilla Almond Milk
Blend all those ingredients up.
Use all of those ingredients too. If I leave anyone out or use unfrozen bananas it doesn’t taste as good. I’m giving you gold here.
And don’t freak out about that spinach. If you don’t like spinach you won’t even taste it. But if you are into spinach, it has that same spinach taste you have come to love.
