Since being up here in Prince George, I’ve been missing one of my favourite quick breakfast/snack/meals – the smoothie. See, I didn’t bring my Blendtec up with me, instead opting to just have it moved up with the rest of my kitchen. Let me tell you – I’m regretting that decision now! I never realized how much I use that machine until going without it for a period of time. So while I’m deprived of delicious smoothie goodness, I thought I’d share this smoothie recipe with you so you enjoy a smoothie or two for me.
This smoothie recipe came about while I was working on a project with North Coast Naturals. They asked me to develop some smoothie recipes with a variety of their products, using simple ingredients that people would have on hand. I thought it would be a fun project, so I said yes. This green smoothie recipe was my absolute favourite of my creations – I found myself making it over and over. And not just because I had spinach to use up ;) It’s just a really tasty smoothie, and is such a lovely green colour. I also love that is doesn’t use bananas or milk (dairy or non). I find almost every smoothie recipe includes either a banana or milk or both. Sometimes, you just don’t want a milky, banana flavoured smoothie. Or at least I don’t.
So since my blender hasn’t yet arrived for me to enjoy a glass of green goodness, how about you give it a go so I can live vicariously through you? Deal?
