Get Healthy: Green Banana Smoothie

I’m prone to hyperbole, but I’m not exaggerating when I say how amazingly delicious this smoothie is. I expected to have to choke it down, but I think my world rocked on it’s axis a bit when I took my first sip. I’m pretty sure that healthy smoothies are going to be the secret to my success in adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Here’s how you do it:

Ingredients: 
1 cup of almond milk, unsweetened

1 medium banana
2 big handsful of fresh spinach
1 T ground flax seed
five ice cubes

Blend it all, sip it slowly, and marvel at how delicious it is! This will forevermore be my preferred method for eating fresh spinach.

This has about 215 calories in it, but you could reduce that by about 50 calories if you omit the ground flax seed. If you do omit it, you’re missing out on some good fiber and protein!
