Creamy Banana-Almond Butter Green Smoothie Recipe
It's a challenge to get my children to eat enough greens, especially raw. For this reason I've taken to creating kid-friendly green smoothies for them to drink every day for a snack. This smoothie is mainly sweetened by the banana in it and the almond butter gives it a rich nutty flavor, the kids had no idea that there was spring mix in the smoothie! The spring salad mix has many red and purple lettuces, so the shake doesn't turn as green.
4 cups raw milk or milk kefir
1 frozen organic banana
2 cups spring mix salad blend
3 tablespoons homemade almond butter
1 tablespoon of raw cream
1 heaping tablespoon shredded coconut
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 heaping tablespoon raw honey (optional)
Rinse and drain salad mix.
Layer all ingredients into a blender and blend for several minutes. You may have to stop and stir with a spoon once to help the ingredients incorporate. Blend until smooth and frothy.
Pour into chilled glasses and enjoy!
