Green Dessert Smoothie

Have you caught on to the "green drink" trend? For those of your who are green juice addicts, and for those who are more hesitant to try a grass-colored drink, I can promise that you will enjoy my Green Dessert Smoothie. 

Serves 1, 92 calories/serving
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk; (I like the Whole Foods brand.)
  • 1/2 small banana 
  • 1/2 Medjool date, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup spinach
  1. Add 1/2 date plus the 1/2 cup almond milk to your blender. Blend until date is in very tiny pieces.
  2. Chop your 1/2 banana into 4 pieces, add to mix, and blend until creamy and smooth.
  3. Lastly, add in your spinach (greens!) and blend until consistent throughout. 
This low calorie Green Dessert Smoothie will satisfy your sweet tooth while also fulfilling the allure of a green drink!
