Green Smoothie

I tried green smoothies a few times in the past, and I never liked them. Then I tried a magical addition and suddenly they were fabulous. The addition was a straw. I don't know why it made such a difference, but I now love green smoothies for breakfast.

My job requires waking up at O dark thirty, so I prefer to assemble the smoothie beforehand. I put everything but the banana in the personal blender and put it in the fridge. Then in the morning I pop in a frozen banana, blend, and go.

Green Smoothie

2 large handfuls baby spinach
1 heaping spoonful ground flaxseed
1 spoonful almond butter
Milk (about 3/4 cup)
1 frozen banana

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Serves one.
