This is one of our favorite afternoon snacks as well as a quick, easy breakfast food
- 1-2 ripe bananas
- 1 C fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 C Soy milk or almond milk or fruit juice
- 1 T ground flax seeds or chia seeds
- 1 T honey or sugar, if needed
- spinach, as desired
- 1 C ice (approx)
Combine all ingredients in Vita-Mix or high speed blender.
Play with the combinations to find out what works best for you. Add more or less ice, depending on the consistency that you prefer. Try to stay away from the extra sugar, if you can. The flax and chia seeds provide some essential fatty acids, and the spinach kicks the nutrient value up a notch, without adding much flavor. However, be forewarned, it will turn the smoothie from pink to brownish. A small price to pay!
