Healthy Green Snickerdoodle Smoothie

If you have been trying to eat healthy but can’t quite kick that sweet tooth, I’ve got the perfect treat for you to try.  A healthy, green and delicious smoothie that takes just like a snickerdoodle cookie.  Not kidding.

I discovered this recipe when I was at home on maternity leave and trying to shed my baby weight, and it was a favorite go to in the morning.   The avocado helps to keep you full, and the initial boost of greens first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day.

These days, I usually triple the ingredients and make them for the whole family.  This is a toddler favorite in our house too.

If it still seems too good to be true, just try it.  I promise you won’t be disappointed!

(And yes, it is weird that it is green and tastes like a delicious cookie, but just go with it.)

Healthy Green Snickerdoodle Smoothie

(Single Serving)

  • ½ Avocado
  • 1 handful of Spinach (approximately ½ cup)
  • 1 Banana (frozen)
  • ¼ to ½ cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ½ tsp Vanilla
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon

Using sweetened vanilla flavor Almond Milk will help enhance the yummy taste, but it will boost calories as well.  When I want a little extra sweetness, I add 1 packet of Truvia sweetener or a touch of Agave nectar.
