So, this morning I went to make my smoothie, and realized we're out of bananas. So, I discovered a tasty alternative to the HULK smoothie I thought I'd share, because it was even better than the HULK! Instead of adding bananas and peanut butter, I followed the recipe, except substituted banana & peanut butter for about 3/4 cup of frozen blueberries (still in my freezer from when I stocked up and froze them when they were in season and on sale last summer!). I blended away, coming up with a blue smoothie, which my 3 year old smart-as-a-whip kiddo promptly announced would probably turn me into Batman. :) I love that kid. So, see below - I like this one even better than the HULK! And, I thought I'd share it because if your kiddos don't see you making it (i.e. adding spinach to it), they will love it b/c it just tastes like a blueberry smoothie! I have to admit, drinking a green smoothie kind of wigs even me out, so I can't blame others for being fearful.
BATMAN Smoothie Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk (unsweetened if you're brave)
- 1/2 cup honey or vanilla Greek yogurt (you can use plain and add a little honey)
- 1/2 cup ice (optional)
- 1-2 TB ground flaxseed (optional)
