Makes about 20 oz. Similar to the Beginner’s Green Smoothie but with less yogurt and almond milk and two kinds of fruit. This simple smoothie does not have extra oil, flaxseed, or banana in it.
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup plain, fat-free Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 Tablespoon chunky peanut butter
1 cup (30 g) baby spinach
1/2 cup frozen dark cherries without added sugar
1/2 cup frozen blueberries without added sugar
Add all ingredients in the order they are listed (from liquids to soft to hard to ice) to the Vitamix container. Secure the lid.
Turn the machine on to Variable speed 1 and slowly increase to speed 10. Turn the machine to High.
Use the tamper to push ice into the ingredients as needed.
Blend for about 45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.
NOTE: This recipe has been written for the Vitamix 5200 with Standard 64-ounce container. If you are using a different machine, you may need to make adjustments to the speed or processing time. Know your blender and don’t overload the machine.
