Refreshing Go-To Smoothie

This is really tasty. I modified the recipe a bit by substituting half the avocado with some plain Greek yogurt to increase the protein content and also added some fresh ginger and flax and chia powder. Also made concentrated green tea with half the water which I added to a separate container shaken with a few ice cubes before dumping the lot into the blender. Didn't notice the call for honey for the longest time. Doesn't really need it IMO.

I have also tried using

I have also tried using frozen spinach in this recipe - there was recently a brief shortage of leafy greens due to weather conditions so I went looking in the frozen food section. Not only is the packaging much smaller but the product itself was considerably cheaper! I paid $1 (sale - 1/2 price) for two "bricks" of spinach weighing almost the equivalent (300 g) of one of those big plastic clamshells I normally pay more than $5 for. And they don't go bad in a week! Now, they won't make an attractive salad but if you're more likely to put your spinach in a smoothie then this may be the way to go for you too. I just need to figure out a way of dividing the frozen pieces equally without too much effort. I think 1/4 to 1/3 of one of the spinach "bricks" equals about what I used to add fresh (which I used to do by eye/handfuls through the blender top opening). Today I nuked the whole (150 g) frozen spinach brick for about 30 seconds at 30% power which seemed to do the trick but I didn't get a clean cut through the brick. Close enough though. The other three still mostly frozen pieces went back into the freezer for another day. Plus, you can add the spinach to the hot tea for a few minutes to cool the tea down and thaw the spinach out!

Super fresh smoothie

My first thaught was: IEEH it's green. But the taste is so much better than it looks like. You have to try it. I'm gonna make it for my boyfriend tomorrow.

Fresh, sweet, easy to drink

This is a really refreshing smoothie. I used Macha blend green tea, and substituted the avocado with a soft/silken tofu and added mint leaves. Very good.

I have to say, this is really tasty. I add manuka honey to this to sweeten and sometimes replace grapes with a kiwi fruit (skin on) and some strawberries. You can add any other fruits if you wish. I find it hard to eat the ingredients separately so find the smoothie is the easiest way to get all I need in 1 drink. I put the green tea in the fridge for half an hour once the teabag has drained well to cool it down or you can add ice to the smoothie to cool it down.
