Packed with protein, antioxidants, vitamins, and calcium, start your day off right with this Super-Charged Green Tea, Avocado, and Spinach Smoothie!
Yes, you are reading that title correctly. As if I wasn’t on enough food-related bandwagons as it is, I’ve finally jumped headfirst into the “Green Smoothie” sensation. I never thought I’d be a fan of throwing greens into my beverages; it was just one of those things that sounded, well, gross.
You see, I have this friend. She is super cool and wonderful and an avid reader of the blog (hi there friend!) but when I was first getting to know her I noticed this concoction she would drink every morning.
A Kale Shake.
She told me her husband whipped one up for her every morning and that it was a great way to make sure she got all her greens. Now I have no doubt that it tasted (and still tastes) just fine, but once in a while I would see her chewing the contents of the kale shake.
For the same reason that I cannot fathom why people drink bubble tea, I couldn’t imagine myself having to chew my beverage. I want my smoothies to be, well, smooth.So I got to work on this super-charged spinach smoothie and thus my permanent place on the green-smoothie bandwagon came to be.
I think you all know me well enough to trust that I would warn you if this tasted like anything other than amazing. Though the color still very much shows (which I liked with the green tea and avocado combo), the flavor of spinach disappears and instead you are greeted with avocado, honey, and green tea.
Fresh, sweet, and packed with secret super-power spinach! Oh and some rolled oats and creamy Greek yogurt, for added protein and calcium.
This will be, by far, my favorite smoothie to enjoy this Spring, and all year around to be honest!
Note: if you have an avocado allergy, feel free to sub in a banana for the avocado. It’ll still provide the thick, creamy texture and even some sweetness from the naturally occurring sugars in the banana.
I’ll be back on Monday with a recipe for Tomato Baked Eggs, as well as plenty of photos on “how to create your own baked eggs”. Since, you know, baked eggs are the bomb and everyone should know about their glorious simplicity.
See you then!
