banana blueberry green smoothie

i love green smoothies, but i'll admit that i don't make them much over the winter. so three cheers for the warmer weather, so i can make lots of green smoothies without being chilled to the bone.


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1½ cups spinach (or any green)
  • 10-15 raw untoasted almonds
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 ice cubes

like all my green smoothie recipes, i just toss everything in a blender. pulse a few times to help break up the ice, and then blend for approximately 30-45 seconds until everything is smooth and creamy. you may have to add a little more water to get things mixing.
