Green smoothies are one of those things that you can never have enough variations on. So here’s a new one, my favorite of the moment. This one is super-creamy thanks to avocado, banana, and coconut milk. The kiwi and aloe juice add a very unique refreshing flavor dimension. And of course it’s got kale AND spinach for extra green goodness. So all in all, a nice nutrition-packed powerhouse to turbo-boost to your day without caffeine. Give it a try! These things are strangely addictive. Makes enough for 2-3 servings. I make a big batch every few days and portion out into mason jars to bring to work (I tend to drink them in the morning while everyone is sipping their coffee).
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1/2 frozen banana (buy extra to slice and freeze, so you always have frozen on hand!)
- 1 whole ripe kiwi
- 1/2 cup kale, chopped
- 1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup aloe vera juice
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used TJ’s unsweetened coconut beverage)
- 3/4 cup water
Cut the ends off the kiwi, then cut in quarters and use a paring knife to remove the fuzzy peel. Put the kiwi fruit plus other ingredients into a high powered blender, and give it a good whirl for about 1 minute until everything has a very nice smooth uniform creamy texture. Enjoy chilled.
