The Smoothie

What is better than a sweet, frosty smoothie!  I eat these ANYTIME of day, but find them particluarly convenient for mornings because you can make ahead and freeze in pint size canning jars.  The base of our smoothies are coconut milk and spinach, providing healthy fat, vitamins & minerals to support heart health, brain balance and vibrant skin!  Flavor variations are limited only by your imagination. Here are some of our faves!

 

The Smoothie Base

- 2 cups of crushed ice  

- 1/2 - 3/4 can of full fat coconut milk

- 1 cup of spinach

- Honey -or- Stevia to taste

 

Depending on your blender, you might be able to add all your ingredients at once. I have to do it seperately.  In my Ninja I have to crush the ice by itself, then add the rest of the ingredients together.  If it comes out to thick, just add some water to reach your desired consistency.  It might require a little experimenting!
