Serves: 1
Yield: 2 cups
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cook time: none

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana, peeled and sliced, preferably frozen
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter
  • 1 Medjool date, pitted
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plant-based milk of choice (coconut, almond, oat)
  • 1 pinch unrefined sea salt

Optional Toppings:

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Method

  1. Blend together all the ingredients until smooth.
  2. If the consistency of the smoothie is too thick, slowly add more plant-based milk to the blender.
  3. To add an extra boost to your smoothie, pick 1 or 2 of the optional spices.

FM Tip: Avocado is a little powerhouse that’s discreet in flavor. It is rich in essential fatty acids that are integral for cell and hormone function, and it will keep you fuller for longer.
