I had been making a lot of these smoothies lately and my wife really liked them, and so did I. So, I figured I would make a video on it! My goal with this smoothie was to have an awesome tasting smoothie and add a green punch to it. I went for a tropical fruit tasting smoothie base and added a spinach and kale kick to it basically with additional add-ins.
Below are the basic steps and ingredients I use.
Step 1: Add and mix the greens
Step 2: Add and mix the fruit
Step 3: Add the yogurt and everything else
Nectarine(s) (or peach(s), but I prefer nectarines)
Collagen (totally optional - my wife just likes it)
Hopefully I didn't miss anything. You can watch the video to be sure, but that is the main gist of it, in my opinion. Also, I don't measure amounts I just go be "feel" as I often want to tweak a recipe depending on my mood. Let me know what you think!
