Berry Banana Green Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen berries (sometimes I use mangoes if I have them…)

1 tbs hemp powder

1 tbs cacao powder

1/2 cup water (or non dairy milk of your choice)

1 cup raw spinach

1 banana mushed on top

Put all ingredients in your container and mix! I find layering the ingredients in the order above works best with my blender.

Speaking of…I LOVE my Tribest blender. Easy to use, long lasting, and powerful! It costs about $80 on Amazon and I highly suggest getting the mason jar (about $15) ¬†attachment. It comes with the cups shown above so you can blend directly in to the container (less mess). With the mason jar attachment you can blend it directly in to a mason jar.
