Smoothie for a Non-Smoothie Drinker


I am not a smoothie person. Never have been. For starters, I don’t drink juice (that’s a whole separate post, so I won’t get into my issue with juice here) and a smoothie is basically fancy juice. But lately, I’ve found myself craving them…probably because it’s been so hot lately.

To satisfy my craving, I’ve spent the past two weeks throwing things in a blender to see what combination works for me.

Here’s the winning combo (no need to measure – just put the ingredients in and tweak as necessary to get the taste you like):

Fresh Spinach Leaves

1 Frozen Banana

Nonfat Greek Yogurt (I use and prefer Fage 0% Plain)

Spoonful of Raw, Unsalted Almond Butter

Water (as needed to get the consistency that you like)


Note: Everyone’s taste buds are unique, so this smoothie might not work for you. If this one doesn’t work, play around with ingredients until you find one that does. Be creative and share your creation with us!
