Spinach smoothies are an excellent introduction to Green Smoothies. Spinach has a subtle taste and isn’t as ‘in your face’ as kale for instance. The addition of avocado gives this recipe a wonderfully smooth texture.
0.7 lb spinach
3-4 ripe bananas
1/2 c soaked almonds
1/2 – 3/4 c raisins or medjool dates, optional
2 trays of ice cubes or 3 c water
2 Tbs raw cacao, 1/4 tsp vanilla or 3/4 c berries
Blend until smooth. Makes plenty for 2.
