Hey, Sister! That's One Good Green Smoothie!

My sister is an example to me when it comes to healthy eating.  She is amazing!  Don't be hesitant to try this very green smoothie.  It was quite good!

I also enjoyed the taste of the fresh almond milk she made.  Our sister-in-law taught us that once the almonds have been soaked and dried, they can be kept in the freezer.  She usually soaks four cups at a time, and can make about two weeks' worth of almond milk before she needs to soak some more.  Enjoy!

Very Green Smoothie

2 cups spinach
1 1/4 cup almond milk
1 cup frozen peaches
1/2 of a frozen banana
1 tablespoon almond butter
2 drops stevia sweetener or more
1 packet of Nutribiotic Chocolate Rice Protein

Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Fresh Almond Milk 

cups water
1/2 cup soaked almonds (soak them overnight in water)
a pinch of salt

Blend for 2 minutes.  Strain through cheesecloth (or clean cotton dishtowel).  

Makes one quart almond milk.  Best if used within three days.
