While I’m loving that it’s fall…I have to face reality. The calendar season does not dictate the weather here. It’s heading back into the 90s this week and I’m wanting a cold drink. A fun one. But I’m trying to be healthy. What’s a girl to do? The struggle is real.
This is the best of both worlds. Believe it or not there are greens in there! I figured if I could make green smoothies that taste like fruit and not the greens, why not add greens to another type of smoothie…one that feels indulgent.
Here’s what I put in it:
2 frozen bananas
1 large handful of mixed greens
1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder
1 large cup of room temperature leftover coffee
1/2 ripe avocado
a handful of ice (optional)
If you want perfectly creamy, leave out the ice. If you want a treat that’s a little more like a frozen dessert, put the ice in.
The next step is to enjoy it with no guilt!
