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
