Sometimes I feel like a bad vegan. I don’t like green smoothies. I should like green smoothies. I should love green smoothies. But I don’t. Well, I didn’t. Until this week. When I accidentally made a green smoothie that I love! Whooohoo!
2 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
1 frozen banana, chunked
2 small pears, chopped
4 TBSP hemp protein powder (or protein powder of your choice)
3 cups fresh spinach
Add everything to a blender and blend.
Makes 2 servings.
I think the pear in this smoothie really adds the flavor I needed to get past the greens. And, spinach is one of the mildest greens, according to what I’ve read (besides lettuce, but I just can’t do a lettuce smoothie…yet!). The combo of the two works perfectly for me.
Finally. A green smoothie I not only enjoy but look forward to drinking!
