Super Spring Smoothie

Spring is in the air! Well… kind of. Toronto has been pretty up and down temperature-wise over the past few weeks. It was warm­ing up and just when we thought we were in the clear and spring was upon us, it went down to –10 degrees Cel­sius. Oy!

That being said, I do believe that the worst of win­ter is over and am opti­mistic about the com­ing of warmer weather. My body must know it’s com­ing because I have been crav­ing fresh fruity smooth­ies! This is a lit­tle weird as I haven’t really been much of a smoothie per­son in the past. Because of that, I’ve been using very sim­ple ingre­di­ents. I find that fewer, bet­ter ingre­di­ents make for an ener­giz­ing, tasty, smoothie experience!

Here is one that I’ve recently been hav­ing for break­fast and some­times also as a snack.

Mornin’ Sun­shine Smoothie

This smoothie is lightly sweet and fruity. The spinach adds lot of nutri­tional value and you can’t even taste it, which is nice for those who aren’t fans of tast­ing veg­gies in their drinks.

Makes a good 6–8 ounces of smoothie. You can add more almond milk if you are mak­ing smooth­ies for two.

Needed: a blender!

Ingre­di­ents:

1/2 cup of frozen mangos

banana (sub­sti­tute kiwi for a slightly dif­fer­ent flavour)

hand­ful baby spinach

1 tea­spoon chia seeds

1/4–1/2 cup unsweet­ened almond milk (any non-dairy milk is fine)*

Instruc­tions:

1. Throw all ingre­di­ents in the blender and blend until smooth

2. Enjoy!

* You may want to add more milk depend­ing on the con­sis­tency desired.

Oy Vegan!
