~Five SMOOTHIES with FIVE ingredients or less~

~Smoothie Recipes~

Each one of these smoothie recipes only require a few ingredients & thus are EASY to make!
Try using the snack size ones for that 3/4pm lull that most of us have...instead of reaching for another cup of java! I usually have smoothies first thing in the morn, or as meal replacements on occasion. 
Note: ALL smoothies are DAIRY & GLUTEN free!

Afternoon Refresher (snack)

handful of frozen mango
handful of frozen strawberries (or blueberries)
about 1 cup of fresh organic spinach
water to desired consistency

Peanut Butter Parfait (snack)

1 frozen banana
2 spoonfuls of organic peanut butter
1 cup of almond milk
honey to taste
add water/milk to desired consistency

Greenie Goodness (snack)

large handful of organic spinach
large handful of frozen mango
1/2 fresh avocado
water to taste

Soft & Smooth (meal)

2 teaspoons extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 avocado
1/2 frozen banana
1 teaspoon flax seed (ground)
almond milk to desired consistency
honey to taste

Let's Get Going (meal)

1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (or other berry)
1 teaspoon flax seed (ground)
1/2 cup or more almond milk (to desired consistency)
1-2 scoops dairy-free protein powder of choice
honey to taste

Meal smoothies incorporate both fats & proteins whereas the snack ones do not.
