A few months ago I mentioned in a post that our blender had broken. A friend of a friend read it and sent me a message: she no longer needed her blender – would I like it? I was so delighted with her offer. Not only would her kind generosity save me a few bucks, but because I’m an eco-freak I was very happy to take a perfectly fine used one. Re-using at its finest!
Much to the delight of 2 year old Mack, the “new” blender has lots of buttons. He’s always happy to help make breakfast smoothies like this one with bananas, spinach and almond. It is so delicious and creamy and healthy. A good way to start the day!
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 handful spinach
1 scoop raw almond butter
1-2 tablespoons flax meal
Pour almond milk into blender. Add in banana, spinach, dates, vanilla extract and almond butter. Blend until smooth. Add ice and flax meal and blend until ice is crushed. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
