Green Smoothie {that doesn’t hurt my taste buds}

Every now and then, I go through crisis of craving something green and fresh. Perhaps to retaliate for missing nutrients, my body punishes my taste buds via forced consumption of some green goop, aka juices or smoothies.

To minimize the traumatic effect of ‘green’ on my soul, I am resigned to find flavor combinations that are least likely to leave a lingering sensation ofΒ  distress. And what do you know, it turns out it is not impossible to consume a healthy dose of green without significant discomfort.

HOW TO MAKE GREEN SMOOTHIE

Ingredients
1 very ripe banana, or very ripe fresh mango, or 1 cup pineapple (frozen is fine)
1/2 avocado
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1/2 cup kefir or yogurt
4-5 ice cubes (optional)
1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)

Instructions
Process everything in a blender (high-powered is best).
Enjoy right away.

Notes
The reason for very ripe banana is slightly green bananas give smoothies a bitter taste.
If mangoes are not perfectly ripe (which is often the case with frozen mangoes), they make smoothies taste chalky.
