Go green and power up with this Power Greens Banana Smoothie. It will give your body a nutritional boost and keep you satisfied for the morning.
One of my favorite blends of salad greens is Power Greens. Several brands of organic salad producers have come up with their own “power” blends and these can be a mix of baby kale, spinach, red and green chards, curly endives, and even bok choy. Most are triple washed baby greens ready to go. They are packed with vitamins and minerals and it is a great way to add a boost of nutritional flavor to your salads, smoothies, and stir fries. I used them mainly for salads and smoothies because I cook a lot more veggies in my stir fries for a meal than that 5 ounce bag. That said, I do occasionally add a handful to my noodles. I really like them and often have a bag or two in the refrigerator.
Today’s Power Greens Banana Smoothie is one I concocted sometime back. I have to say this smoothie may not be for everyone taste wise, but it sure is packed with goodies and kept me satisfied for the morning. You can use your milk of choice. Coconut, soy, flax, or almond milk would work. I used lightly sweetened almond milk with 7 grams of sugar per serving. I will try it next time with flax milk as discussed in this Apple, Green Pepper, and Flax Smoothie.
This recipe is sufficient for two if taken together with other foods for breakfast. It makes for a large portion for one but is perfect if taken on its own as a light lunch. Keep it for yourself or share it but definitely try it! 😉
