That is a tall order.
I drink this smoothie almost every single day.
It’s that good.
Now that I’ve talked it up, probably WAY to much, here’s the recipe with photos:
The Harry Belafonte
1 1/2 cups milk (I use TJ’s Almond Beverage, Original)
1 to 2 tablespoons of unsweetened coco powder
1 to 2 handfuls of frozen* spinach (depending on your spinach mood)
1 to 1 1/2 frozen chopped spotted to brown bananas**
I have since then removed the
Put everything into your blender in that order, and then blend. You’re all set for a great way to start out your day. Or if it’s evening and you’re craving a milkshake, leave out the spinach, and add in a little extra chocolate. It’s a pretty decent substitute to a thousand calorie shake. Now listen to this song…
*Spinach doesn’t have to be frozen, it just keeps MUCH longer that way, so I always keep a few bags in my freezer.
**I buy around 36 bananas at a time, let them brown, then chop and freeze them all in ziplock bags. Then I’m set for a few weeks. If you keep the bag thin enough, you can break off banana chunk sections and toss into your smoothie, guessing on the amount. So far this is the easiest way of freezing, storing and using frozen bananas. Be prepared for the checker to make a joke about how many bananas you are buying. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
