Double Green Shake

  • 1 frozen banana (cut into pieces)
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 6 kale leaves (be sure to remove stalk)
  • 1 cup (handful) spinach
  • 1 scoop organic plant fusion plain protein powder (I prefer the natural flavor)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp raw cashews
  • 3 dates pitted
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (any non-dairy milk works great here)

Add coconut milk to blender first, then add banana, ice cubes, dates, protein powder and remaining ingredients (trust me, this is the best order to get that creamy texture from your blender).  Once all ingredients are in the blender, let her rip.   Adjust milk to reach desired consistency.  If making this as a bowl, cut the milk in half.  Top your bowl with your favorite fruits, nut butters, granola, chia seeds, honey, maple, etc.  If using this as a smoothie bowl, omit the almond butter and use it on top as a drizzle.  Enjoy!

Have you ever tried avocados in your smoothies?  If you haven't, now is the time, it makes them sooo creamy and decadent you honestly feel like you're having a sweet treat rather than a protein smoothie!  This bad boy is seriously so good, hence why I call it a shake, it literally tastes like a milkshake!  It's loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients and lots of protein!

I love this shake when I have an early morning or have to eat breakfast on the go, or after a workout when I simply can't decide what I'm in the mood for and don't feel like cooking.

Adjust the ingredients to suit you, would love to know any additions you made and love!
