Smoothie Experiment


This is not sludge

Smoothies are deceptively hard to make.

The ones I come across are so simple and so delicious, I think, “Now why didn’t I think of that??”

So this morning, I decided to have fun and experiment, and this is what I put in the blender:

  • 1 1/2 cups of almond milk
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 2 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 2 collard green leaves
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 bag of frozen mangoes
  • 1 banana

(Yields about 16 oz)

Sounds pretty yum right? It turned out decently, but it was still missing something. Maybe I put in too much almond butter. On the plus side it was very filling, and it is definitely nutritious. It’s got everything you need – good carbs, protein, unprocessed sugars, and your omega-3s.

If any of you are feeling adventurous, please try it out and tell me if you end up perfecting it!

See you soon,
