Re: Easy smoothie recipe please

I just made my favorite smoothie this morning. A handful of raw cashews, a banana, a handful of spinach, a cup of coconut water and a tablespoon of coconut oil (optional). 2 ice cubes. You can also add some chia seeds!

My all time favorite! Dark chocolate cherry! Fresh black cherries,
Frozen banana
Yogurt or milk
Nut butter
Dark cocoa powder
Ice cubes

And sometimes:
Protein powder
Chia seeds
Coconut oil
Spinach

The taste of the cherries and chocolate and nut butter is strong, so add ins just disappear!

I combine plain Greek yogurt, a splash of orange juice, a handful of frozen mixed berries, 1 whole banana, a scoop of protein powder and a squirt of honey. Perfectly yummy every time! You can also add a bit of oatmeal for fiber, and it just blends away.

Also, I've seen chocolate milk recommended as a good post-workout drink. I sometimes modify that into a smoothie by using skim milk, chocolate syrup, a frozen banana and protein powder. Same flavor as chocolate milk with a few added benefits!
