    hollygollygee's Note:

    I drink this every morning and have been asked the here it is. I make this in the Vitamix and fill a mason jar with it to pack to work and sip on for most of the morning.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup almonds
    • 1 1/2 cups water
    • 1 banana, very ripe
    • 2 cups spinach, raw
    • 3 tablespoons cocoa
    • 2 dropperfuls stevia, liquid vanilla from Sweetleaf
    • ice


    1. 1
      Put all of the above ingredients in a Vitamix or other high speed blender. I have never used anything but a Vitamix and it comes out perfectly smooth with one. I can't vouch for any others.
    2. 2
      Note, that the stevia is two dropperfuls -- not two drops. I have tried different types of stevia and have a definite preference for Sweetleaf liquid. This is also good with hazelnut stevia (instead of vanilla).
    3. 3
      Variation- sometimes I add a teaspoon of coffee granules for a frozen mocha. Sometimes I add a tiny bit of peppermint extract. Sometimes I use carob instead of cocoa and add the peppermint (the carob mint is good, but not a fan of the plain carob).
    4. 4
      For an immunity boost, I also often add water kefir grains. They don't affect the taste. I realize many people don't have those, but if you do -- they make a great addition -- 2 teaspoons or so.
    5. 5
      Add enough ice to make it thick, about 2-3 cups.
