I drink a green smoothie almost everyday changing the recipe all the time. With a smoothie bar at work I have plenty of things to play with. William-Sonoma is doing a “not your typical smoothie project”. They asked me to share a heathy smoothie recipe that was a bit out side the box. My favorite smoothie fit the request perfect and I decided to share. This smoothie recipe is gluten free, paleo, nut free and vegan.
1 1/3 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen spinach
3/4 cup frozen mango
2 tablespoon sunflower butter
Simple place everything in blend and blend very well. Using frozen fruit and spinach is the trick to making the smoothie smooth and creamy. With frozen ingredients their is no need for any ice. My favorite blender is a vita mix and it tends to be the best at blending frozen fruit. Sunflower butter adds the protein you want in a smoothie with a unique flavor. Sunflower butter seems to be a bit more subtle in flavor then other nut butters.
