Ultra Green Smoothie

Our weekend filled with adventures and socializing was a nice break from spending my time alone in the kitchen. I love cooking, but sometimes a girl just needs a break!

It wasn’t until Monday morning that I realized I had absolutely no meals prepared for the day ahead. I had to wing it and pack a couple of nori sheets, rice and leftover sausage for lunch. The combination turned out to be quite good for the amount of time I put into the meal. Granted, you probably wont see a nori sausage recipe popping up on the blog anytime soon.

After a day of randomly eating whatever I could find, I decided to dedicate the afternoon to prepping a couple of meals to make the crazy week ahead a bit more manageable. The first (essential) recipe on my mental list was a fresh batch of vanilla almond flax butter. We go through the stuff at an incredibly alarming rate.

As I was licking the spoon… common you can’t say you don’t do the same thing when you’re making nut butters, I decided to throw a bit of it into a green smoothie for a invigorating afternoon pick me up. Avocado, banana, spinach, bam!

So easy, so delicious.
