This Green Chunky Monkey Smoothie is a great way to get your greens in in the morning while tasting like a yummy milkshake!

We have been on a major smoothie kick lately and I love it!!  I am never starving in the morning but I like to have a little something that is easy to whip together.  Smoothies are such a great and easy way to get greens in, not only for me but for Ruth too!  She would never tough a spinach leaf, but put a few handfuls in a smoothie and she will scream MOOOOOTHIE so loud then drink the whole thing in record time.  This recipe is simple and tastes so incredible it’s like a milkshake.  Chunky Monkey is a delicious ice cream flavor if you have never had it – packed with chocolate, banana and walnuts.  For this smoothie I used frozen banana, almond butter for the nutty flavor and cacao powder for that chocolate punch.  Then we added some almond milk, spinach and a couple dates for sweetness!  A pinch of salt and ice are also thrown in there for the perfect blend of frozen flavor.

Also, hot tip! I just got a Hurom blender and it works so well!!  I had a ninja before that which was good but I was amazed at how well the Hurom blended everything so smoothly and so quickly.  I recommend!  I also topped this smoothie was some almond milk whipped cream because it just felt right, but it’s not necessary.  Bring a little YUM to your breakfast this week and feel really good about it!
