Green Monkey Smoothie Recipe

I used to pay $10 for this drink at a health food store, but now I make it myself. My home version costs a lot less, and is even healthier. Usually, I make it with avocado so it’s essentially sugar free, but if I’m feeling like a rascally little monkey, I’ll use a banana instead.

Inspiration:

When you think about smoothies, avocados may not come to mind. But they add a delectable creaminess, and are an amazing source of protein, lecithin (a brain food), and good fat.

The Recipe

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 fistfuls chopped kale

  • 1 big stalk celery

  • 1/2 cucumber

  • 1 banana OR 1/2 avocado

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  • (Water or almond milk as needed)

TOOLS

Blender


Directions

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth, adding water or almond milk by the tablespoon if necessary to make your desired consistency.
