One of my favorite Vitamix drinks to make is a mocha frappuccino with carrots, spinach, kale, and squash. This is a great take on that, with stronger emphasis on the greens and less on the coffee.

  2. 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  3. 1/8 cup whole raw almonds (about 12-18), optional
  4. 1 cup baby spinach
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso (or instant coffee)
  6. 1 tablespoon agave or favorite sweetener
  7. 1/2 of a frozen banana
Instructions

Notes
  1. Extra prep time because the banana needs to be frozen, so throw it in the freezer the night before. Well, don't throw it...you might break the ice maker.
