Green Smoothie

Servings: 1
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp sliced almonds or 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1.25 oz. frozen raspberries or blueberries (1/4 cup)
  • 2 oz. frozen strawberries (about 2 large or 6 small)
  • 1/2 cup cold water*
  • 2.5 oz. fresh spinach (2 1/2 cups packed)
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon + 1/8 tsp vanilla extract - for blueberry version
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract - for raspberry version

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender (if using blueberries add cinnamon and vanilla, if using raspberries add almond extract). Blend until well pureed. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • *If needed you can add a little extra water. If using a high powered blender you shouldn't need to.
  • I've tried this with almond milk but I feel that since it's already a creamy smoothie without it, and since almonds are added it's not needed. But if you'd like it even richer and creamier you can use it in place of water.
