Sargentina's Green Meanie Smoothie

sargentina's green meanie smoothie

I use the Bella Cucina Rocket Blender to make my smoothies.

Ha ha, it's perfect that Sarge invented a camo-colored smoothie. The only thing I do different from what Sarge said is that I use frozen banana instead of banana and ice. I think maybe the ice lightens it a little, so I use almond milk as my milk of choice.

Also double hit, this smoothie counts as a fruit and a vegetable serving—

a little bit of baby spinach
frozen banana
1/2 avocado, cut up
almond milk or your milk of choice
squirt of Hershey's syrup

Put the baby spinach, frozen banana, and avocado in the blender cup, then pour in a good amount of almond milk to almost fill the cup. Squirt in some Hershey's syrup. Screw on the cap, stick the cup on the motor base, and blend for 30 seconds. Then take it off the base and give it a little shake to get anything that's stuck on the top of the cup. Blend for another 20 seconds or until the smoothie is churning freely from top to bottom.
