Spinach, Avocado And Banana Smoothie "Leprechaun Smoothie"

Print  Friendly and PDF
Beginning this week I will be posting colored foods mostly focusing on smoothie/beverage/juice etc etc but not restricting to that alone. I know I have been silent for a week. I just wanted to take it easy because this year the seasonal allergy was at its worst.It started right on the day I went to DC to gaze on the Cherry Blossoms. 

For the most part I decided to suffer through it because I didn't want my body to be so dependent on Claritin. The nose and eyes were put to a test and I did give in a week later because it was affecting my concentration at work and cognitive skills in general.So I didn't cook much too cause my nose was always looking for any trigger to make me sneeze million times a minutes.

Ingredients (For 1 Serving):
  • 2 Cups Spinach, loosely packed, cleaned in several changes of cold water
  • 1 Frozen "Chiquita" Banana
  • 1 Cup  Cold  Skimmed Milk
  • 1/2 Ripe Hass Avocado
  • 2 Tsp or less/more Wildflower Honey 
Procedure:
  • Slice the banana and avocado. Add it to the blender along with the cleaned spinach.
  • Measure a cup of cold skimmed milk.Add it to the blender and blend until smooth.
  • The above ingredients yield 2 cups of phenomenal green smoothie that is slightly sweet and not a hint of spinach flavor in it. 
  • Add 2 tsp of wild flower honey.
  • Stir well to incorporate.
  • Smoothie is ready to be consumed.

  10. Wow! Look at those colors! You know the more colors on your plate, the more healthy. You have definitely proven that- Awesome.

    One of the remedies for treating allergies is by using a local honey from your area. The bees pollinate many of the local pollens and honey contains those pollens, this helps to build resistance.

    I hope you have relief soon.
