If I told you I made a smoothie that tasted like the leftover milk that you drink after eating a bowl of Lucky Charms, was good for you and low in carbs...would you believe me? Well you should because it is all true :) If anyone reading has no clue what Lucky Charms tastes like, its like a bowl full of sugary marshmallow heaven that brings me way back. I'm actually not the one that came up with that description for this smoothie recipe. The whole it tastes like "Lucky Charms" bit came from my brother-in-law's sweet girlfriend who was forced by me to take a sip after she looked in horror as I was drinking this green smoothie saying "Mmm" out loud as everyone was eating chips and pizza. I took a sip after she said the whole Lucky Charm description thing and I could not believe how right she was! So if you like Lucky Charms you will like this.
What you need:
- 1 1/4 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 ice cubes
- 2 cups of spinach
- 1/2 of an avocado
- 1 tbs of roasted flax seeds *they must be roasted for this recipe
- 4-5 drops of vanilla stevia
Blend everything up in a blender. Pour into a glass and enjoy right away.
Oh and adding a cute striped straw makes it just a tad more appealing right? So if you want to make your green smoothie more appealing head to Target and pick up a whole little pack for a mere $2.
Please come back and let me know what you think if you make this!
This smoothie has only 4 grams of effective carbohydrate! Can I get a hallelujah!
