Recipe #53: Cinnamon-Almond Green Smoothie

This book finds ways to add lots of fruits and veggies to almost every recipe. That’s one of the many reasons why I’ve been loving this cookbook. Everything is just so fresh and healthy.

So this smoothie is from the section of “make ahead green smoothies”. The idea is to measure out the ingredients in storage bags or mason jars and place in freezer. Then whenever you want a smoothie, just grab the prepared ingredients and blend with the liquid the recipe calls for. It’s 2 minutes of prep ahead of time then 2 minutes the morning of – couldn’t be easier.

My smoothie was a mix of banana, spinach, flaxseed, peanut butter and cinnamon. So I had all that ready to go in the freezer, dumped it in my blender then just added some almond milk. It turned into a delicious and creamy smoothie with a nice green colour.

I’m not usually a huge fan of banana in my smoothies but I actually loved it here. The flavour went really well with the peanut butter and it was delicious. I couldn’t even taste the spinach (or other healthy things in it) so this would be great to feed to picky kids if you want them to eat more vegetables. You can just tell them the colour comes from food colouring πŸ˜‰

I love smoothies like this because they are so versatile and really pack a nutritious-punch. I will definitely be making more smoothie packs to stock in my freezer and maybe switch up the ingredients to make my own ingredient combinations.
