This month’s Crazy Cooking Challenge was to share a smoothie recipe. I’ve mentioned before that I struggle with finding healthy breakfast options that I can quickly grab as I’m running out the door in the morning. So I decided to find a healthy breakfast smoothie that I could make for the hubby and me.
First off, don’t judge this smoothie based on the way it looks! It definitely tastes better than it looks!!
The chocolate silk and spinach give it the unappealing color. I’m guessing the Vanilla Silk would prevent it from looking this dark but we prefer chocolate over vanilla so I went with the Chocolate Silk.
- 1 cup of frozen berries
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of Chocolate or Vanilla Silk
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1/2 cup water
Throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour and enjoy! I filled up four mason jars so we will have them for breakfast in the morning.

I think your smoothie looks good and it should really be about what it tastes like! My thumbnail photo makes my smoothie look very unappealing! It tasted great though!
Oh good, I’ve been looking for new smoothie recipes!! My best smoothies always look gross.

I need to try this! My girl is just starting to love smoothies, and I feel like she would like this one!
Nothing wrong with chocolate in your drink hehe
Chocolate and strawberries is a winning combo in my book, sounds delicious.
