Almond Vanilla Banana Green Smoothie

This great tasting green smoothie is perfect for people who have tried green smoothies in the past and were turned off by their “greeness”. It’s sweet, hides the spinach flavor amazingly well (try giving this to someone who hates the taste of spinach and I bet they won’t even notice), and is a healthy start to your morning routine.

Directions:

These directions are about as easy as it gets – toss all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until… blended. I’ve found the most important thing is to have a blender that can handle the almonds, you want them to be ground down to nothing, no tiny bits!

Other than that, start with a little raw spinach if you are unsure about the taste, and then add more and more each time you make it. You’ll be surprised with how much greens you are able to get in per smoothie without any real difference in taste.
