The Green Goddess Smoothie

This is one of my favorites. The green Goddess Smoothie is served at Earthfare, so I decided to post this recipe.

I see people posting smoothie recipes, they make a classic mistake of adding ice to the blender to make it cold/slushy. However, there is a better way.

The recipe calls for bananas, if I have bananas that are about to go bad, I freeze them. Any time I want a smoothie, I just use frozen bananas instead of fresh, same thing for berries. I actually find it more cost effective to buy a bag of frozen berry mix or frozen strawberries at costco. I never have to worry about my fruit rotting if I don't get to eat all of the berries. Based on this, I'm going to give directions for using mostly frozen ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 18 ox. Organic Apple Cider or Organic Apple Juice
  • 1 oz scoop of Spirulina

Directions

Combine all in a blender and blend until the consistency of apple sauce. If you like it thinner, add more juice or water. Makes approx. two 16 oz servings.
