I’m addicted to this delicious, healthy smoothie. It’s full of nutritious, tasty ingredients and I have one for breakfast or lunch almost every day. I don’t usually put the dollop of whipped cream on top, but I had to doll this one up for her close up. Put the ingredients in your blender in the order listed and blending will be a breeze. I only add the maple syrup if the smoothie doesn’t seem sweet enough (which usually happens if the banana I use isn’t quite ripe enough.) Hope you enjoy!

for two smoothies:

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

1 Tablespoon organic peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon flax seed meal

1 Tablespoon unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder

small handful of fresh kale or spinach

1 ripe banana

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 teaspoons pure maple syrup (optional)

Place all ingredients in blender in order listed. Pulse until very smooth. Pour into two glasses and top with a little dollop of whipped cream (if you wish.) Sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top.

Enjoy!
