It’s the last week of Vegan Month of Food! I hope you have been enjoying it as much as I have. This smoothie can be made two ways — green or not green. I, however, definitely recommend you make it green! Strawberries are loaded with vitamin C, banana is a good source of fiber, and hazelnuts contain vitamins E (for healthy skin, hair and nails) and B (for metabolism). Almonds contain iron, especially important to women who have not undergone menopause, and spinach is a very good source of plant-based protein. All in all, I think we have a winner!
- 1 banana
- 1 large handful spinach
- 1 T hazelnut-almond butter
- 1 c frozen strawberries
- ½ c water for blending
- Blend all ingredients until smooth.
Instead of frozen strawberries and a normal banana, you can use fresh strawberries and a frozen banana.
