We thought since the theme for this April’s Meatless Monday posts has accidentally become breakfast focused, what better way to end the month than with one last breakfast recipe, and it’s an Aaron specialty.
This is a pretty straightforward recipe – nothing too fancy, and pretty easy to make. I make it in a blender, so that has the added bonus of waking everyone in the house up, so they’re ready for their smoothies.
(I say green(ISH), because, well, it doesn’t look that green…)
Aaron’s Green Smoothie
Handful of baby spinach (about 1 cup)
1 large banana
3/4 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup cold water (or more if needed)
Add the first four ingredients, plus about half of the water, to a blender and pulse until combined (should be the consistency of a thick shake) or the blade isn’t doing anything. If the blade isn’t doing anything, add a little more water to loosen the frozen berries up. Only add as much water as you need to get things moving until the smoothie reaches the consistency of a thick shake. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
