This Apple Avocado Smoothie is rich and creamy because of the addition of banana, spinach, and ginger. It’s a great way to start the day.

Ingredients

1 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk

4 cups loosely packed spinach that’s about 2 large handfuls

1 medium avocado peeled and pitted

2 medium apples any kind you like, peel on, cored, and quartered (if not using a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix, cut into rough dice)

1 medium banana cut into chunks and frozen

2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup plus additional to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger or 1/4-inch knob of fresh ginger (if not using a high-power blender, mince the ginger first; use less than 1/2 teaspoon if you’d like a more subtle taste. This smoothie has some zip!)

A small handful of ice cubes

Optional additions: chia seeds flaxseed, protein powder, almond butter, or other nut butter of choice

Instructions

In the order listed, add the almond milk, spinach, avocado, apples, banana, honey, ginger, and ice to a high-powered blender.

Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness and spices as desired. Enjoy immediately.
