This blueberry muffin green smoothie is the perfect all around drink..It's full of protein, antioxidants, greens, and natural sweetness! It's perfect for breakfast or re-fueling after a workout! This was my first time trying dates in smoothies (I see so many people on Instagram do it) and it gave the smoothie such an amazing consistency/sweetness- it was thick and extra creamy and gave it such a nice sweetness that I couldn't even taste a trace of the spinach! I cannot explain how adding just one date transforms this smoothie!!! Dates are often called "nature's caramel" and when you add them to smoothies, it tastes like your enjoying a nice caramel shake (but a very slight one to this smoothie). The cinnamon adds a nice "baked muffin" taste the smoothie, while also adding the cinnamon's benefit of regulating blood sugar! I try out a lot of smoothie combinations... but this one is a new staple! I hope you enjoy, and let me know if you try it out!
Blueberry Muffin Smoothie
- 2/3 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 large medjool date
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 large handful, or cup of spinach
- 1 scoop of an all natural plant-based protein powder* (I use vanilla Perfect Fit)
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
Add all your ingredients to you blender and blend away!
*add 1 tsp. vanilla extract if you use an unflavored protein
**Frozen fruit is always best! It makes the smoothie much creamier, plus you don't have to add ice!
