Smoothies are a great way to get in all your daily servings of fruits
or vegetables... and they're a quick and easy way to incorporate whole
foods into your diet.

This recipe was given to me by @chrispoupart & it's one of my
favorites:

Eat for Health Smoothie (serves 2)
2c frozen blueberries
1 banana
2-3 dates
2T ground flax
2T cocoa powder
1c "milk"
8oz baby spinach

From SeeSarahEat:

I've been enjoying this one lately, I've seen it on Kristin's Raw,
Healthy Tipping Point and Greens for Good with some variations. This
is the way I usually make it:

"Chocolate Cherry Bomb" smoothie
1 cup non-dairy milk
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 cup frozen cherries
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 cups spinach

Mine is pretty simple, but I love it :)
Kale (like a handful or 2)
frozen cherries
raw cacao
raw cacao nibs
water
1 tbs of date sugar (or just chopped dates)

It's pretty much like the chocolate cherry bomb :)

Green (well kind of grey) smoothie

Based on (Brendan Brazier's) Thrive smoothies:

I use hemp milk a lot to make smoothies creamier: just combine 1 pt
hemp seeds with 3 pts water in a blender!

1 small handful spinach, washed
1 cup hemp milk
1 cup water
Large handful fresh Blackberries (as many as you want)
And/or frozen or fresh blueberries
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp hemp protein

That peanut butter one sounds DIVINE. I bought raw almond butter - - I'll try that tomorrow!!
 
I did a Cherry Bomb smoothie a la healthytippingpoint.com
 
Half a banana
A bunch of frozen cherries
1 tbsp flax meal
1 tbsp cocoa
2 cups spinach
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
 
Cocoa makes everything divine <3

Why don't ya'll just throw peanuts, cashews, almonds etc in your vitamix (or magic bullet, ninja whatever) and make the nut butters yourself? Its super easy and much more cost effective!

My bf just bought me a blender yesterday and I had already bought the almond butter last week. But when I run out, I will definitely make my own :)

He got me this - -
 
 
Made specifically for blending and going (you can blend in the same cup you drink it in). There's also a coffee grinder. But, Missah, do you think it can handle crushing nuts? It did okay with my frozen cherries. There aren't any speeds on it, just blend and pulse. And it stops automatically when it's done blending.
 
Plus, it's orange. :D

I think it could handle softer nuts like cashews easily. Almonds are pretty hard...

Now that I finally looked at the link...it has a grinder attachment?  You should have no problem making nut butters.  One of the reviews says it has no problem grinding nuts!

This peanut butter cup smoothie just made my morning! If I keep this up, I'm going to need a lot more bananas. :)
