Almond Coffee Green Smoothie
Serves 1
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.

Ingredients
  1. 5 ice cubes
  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
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
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.
