Sticking to my new years resolutions with this Banana, Chia and Spinach Smoothie!
More times than not I just have a little greek yogurt in the morning for breakfast and then I’m starved by 10:30am. I decided that that has got to change in 2014. While I’m not really one for resolutions, mostly because I aim crazy high and never seem to make them last more than 7 days, but this smoothie resolution I made has a chance of sticking!
Inspired by one of Aida’s smoothies she made for me last week, I started whipping up bright green smoothies every morning and the result was this Banana, Chia and Spinach Smoothie. I’m convinced that smoothies don’t get better than this. It’s the perfect consistency and it’s packed full of fresh spinach, almond milk, frozen mango, chia seeds and a banana.
Also – I’m not a fan of ice in your smoothie. The frozen mango does a great job of cooling this drink down and if you add ice it just takes longer to blend and that cramps my style.
Pinkie promise these will keep you full for a solid 4 hours! And you’ll love them so much you’ll probably want to make a round for lunch too! Maybe even get crazy and whip some up for dessert.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Place everything in a high powered blender and blend for 2 minutes until smooth. Serve immediately.
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
