Walnut Smoothie with Spinach and Banana

Pretty soon I'm gonna have to rename this food blog "Daily Smoothie Recipes."  In the words of Depeche Mode, "I just can't get enough."


Serves 4

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 fistfuls baby spinach
  • 2 small, cold bananas
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (soy, almond, coconut, etc.)

Blend on high in a drink blender for a minimum of  20 seconds, long enough for the walnuts and spinach to blend down into non-existence, this will keep all day in the fridge.  The color will darken, but it will still taste delicious.

Things to Keep In Mind

Do make sure to use a high sped blender that can crush the material real fine. Thicker smoothie often doesn't go well with many. Do take some time out to compare ninja vs nutribullet two of my favorite blenders that you can rely upon for multiple blending and grinding purposes.
