What makes this shake so sexy? (Besides the fact that its dribbling down my chin oh so seductively…)
The awesome ingredients! I’ve been drinking a green drink every day for the past week or so and am feeling amazing! My energy is a lot more sustainable and it keeps me satisfied for hours. Yesterday it was all I had until 8 pm at night, and I was still able to go to class, lacrosse practice and a two mile run!
Normally when I make my green shakes it is fruit + greens. But one day I ran out of fruit! So I had to get resourceful and scoured my kitchen for something I could throw in the blender with my lonely spinach. Then I came across my green matcha tea powder and remembered how much I used to love those green tea frappucinos that Starbucks has.
And alas! The sexy green shake was born.
I decided to add sunflower seed butter because I like how it adds a rich, creamy, consistency to the shake, but feel free to omit it! (PS – Sunflower seed butter is delicious and a great peanut butter substitute if you are looking for one. You can barely taste the difference between the two!)
1 cup almond milk
1 cup ice
1 tbsp sunflower seed butter
1 glorious handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp green matcha tea powder (I used the Gotcha Matcha brand, very good quality)
Pinch sea salt or pink himalayan salt
2 pinches of stevia powder (I recommend NuNaturals)
Blend all ingredients until you have reached your desired consistency!
