Green Smoothie Recipe?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 09, 2012 at 1:09 AM

I'm trying to lose weight, and all the recipes I have come across use banana, and I only want to use low fructose fruits (berries). I know all protein or all fat for breakfast work "best" for weight loss, and I might use those some days, but just want something to change it up, plus get my greens in because quite frankly I feel I don't eat as many greens as I should do to FODMAPS and getting sick of the same ol' salad. What would be a good satisfying creamy smoothie?

Just came up with something that I'm going to try tomorrow for anyone that's interested for a low/no sugar smoothie! I thought I had to use berries for the frozen smoothie consistency but I thought of something else! Frozen Greens! And i'm going to try to replace the banana with half an avocado. And hopefully just greens will get rid of that nasty grey color I get when I use berries. We'll see how it goes :) heres what i'm gonna try... 1 Cup or so of unsweetened Almond milk, Half an avocado, frozen kale and spinach, 1-2 T Almond butter, and MAYBE some stevia/1-2 ice cubes. xxo wish me luck

Berries + almond butter go great together!

1/2 avocado, handful spinach or kale, 1/2-1 banana, 4-5 strawberries, 1tblsp flax, approximately 2/3 C coconut milk or until desired thickness. You can substitute any berry for the banana instead. This is so yummy.
