{Winter Resilience Detox} Monster Smoothie IAJ

I’ve created a monster.

A smoothie monster.

I went into an ingredient frenzy: unable to decide which ingredients to add, I used all of them.

ALL OF THEM.

Monster Smoothie in a Jar

Ingredients:

2 handfuls raw spinach

1/2  avocado

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1 Tbsp chia seeds

a dollop of Cinnamon Sunbutter

an open handful of unsweetened coconut flakes

1 packet Chocolate Amazing Grass Green Superfood

So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage (enough to make the blender work…)

~2 ice cubes (for good measure)

This guy tasted pretty darn good. Really thick and satisfying.

I’d never used avocado in a smoothie before this– it totally changes the texture…and I like it!

I couldn’t taste the blueberries, which was a bummer. I was hoping this would turn out like the Bluesberry Smoothies of yore. Next time, more blueberries…

With the Winter Resilience Detox, I’ve been working on getting more green veggies (spinach) and healthy fats (avocado, coconut…) into my daily routine. I’d say this smoothie did the trick!

    I recently tried cilantro in my smoothie and it was fabulous- I used coconut water as well, the taste was really refreshing!

      Yum! That sounds good! I’ve never tried putting herbs in my smoothies before! I bet basil would taste good in the summer time…

    I do this daily and fill a half liter jar even though I can’t seem to make less than 700ml (about 24 oz). That half liter is always enough for me. It’s my favourite weekday breakfast. I used to not be able to eat too soon after waking up. Now I drink a smoothie throughout the morning.
