Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie (dairy-free)

Hey, everybody!!!

(It’s me…Christy! The additive-free recipes gal!)

Long time, no see!!!!

Wow! It’s been soooooooo long since I’ve posted here that you’ve probably forgotten who I am! LOL!

Well, it’s been a long and crazy past couple of years…for everyone! Am I right?!?! So I’ve been distracted with a bazillion other things.

Just to catch you up to speed…

Chad and I are still living full-time in our RV, buuuuuuuuuuut…..we are no longer in California! I know…hard to believe, huh?!

We are working at a campground in Arizona right now for the winter, and we are soaking in this amazing warm winter weather here! Yay!

Next, we plan to work at a campground in Colorado for the summer. And, then???? Who knows!

Anywhoooooooooo….It’s 80 degrees here today, so we decided to make this yummy, additive-free smoothie. And I thought I’d share it with all of you here, too! Enjoy! 🙂

Don’t let the spinach fool you…this smoothie is delicious and nutritious!!

For more great recipes and all of the grocery shopping tips you need to ensure that you select the most additive-free versions of all ingredients needed to make this recipe (and all of my recipes), check out my book “Eating Additive-Free“!

For 1 serving, mix the following together in a blender:
(Measurements are approximate.)

-1/2 cup fresh baby  spinach, packed
-1/2 cup frozen raspberrries
-1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
-1 TBSP raw honey
-water (about 1 cup), to desired consistency

For a thicker texture, try adding a bit of avocado or some milk or plain yogurt instead of  the water. Smoothies are the most flexible thing you can make. You can also use juice for your liquid 🙂

Smoothies are a great place to hide veggies for your little ones (or other “uncooperative” family members). Throw in some carrots, celery, etc. Sky is the limit!!!!
