C’mon, don’t look at me through your computer screen like that. It’s good. I promise.

Honestly, I’ve never been a smoothie person … let alone a green smoothie person. Just the color can throw you off, yes? This is a great way to kick-start my morning. I have a really, really hard time eating greens, so drinking them in smoothies is the ticket for me.

You can’t even taste the greens. All you taste is peach!

 

green smoothie:

for a 12-16 oz glass

- 1 cup spinach

- 1 peach*

- a lil almond or coconut milk

- ice cubes

- chia seeds (opt.)

–> Just blend together well, and there you go!

* An easier way is to use frozen peaches, and then ditch the ice cubes! :)

pssst, i won’t tell anyone you ate the whole batch.

These are perfect for a long day hiking, or sports, or before/after an intense workout. It has a nice combo of protein + carbs. (Similar to Clif bars, but better for you.)

I will also mention that these are both GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE.
