    • Here is a great QUICK snack that I love to make for my family when I don't have a lot of time.  It supplies my children with their needed EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids) and their needed GREENS.

      And most importantly- it tastes SO GOOD!  They think it is a treat...you can't go wrong with that!

       

      Chocolate Almond GREEN Smoothie

       

      Ingredients

      1 banana (I prefer frozen)

      2 dates (Optional- depends on how sweet you want it)

      2 cups cold water (or 1 1/2 cups water plus 1 cup ice)

      1/4 cup raw almonds

      1 TBS ground flaxseed (I usually let my Blendtec blender grind it for me)

      1 TBS Cocoa powder (Carob powder works as well)

      SPINACH- as much or as little as you want

      *Helpful hint:  I like to buy my spinach in large quantities and I place it directly in my freezer.  This way it lasts longer and works GREAT for cold smoothies.

       

      DIRECTIONS

      Simply blend all the ingredients together in a blender AND ENJOY!

      This makes about 3 1/2 cups...about 2 adult servings
