Here’s proof that not all green drinks have a taste—or texture—that resembles dirt. This smoothie, from The Fresh Energy Cookbook: Detox Recipes to Supercharge Your Life, by Natalia Rose and Doris Choi, gets its creamy texture from banana and avocado. Full of monounsaturated fat and omega-3 fatty acids, avocados help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins, like A, D, and E, making the Green Machine a true power drink.
1 8 oz box organic baby spinach
½ cup ripe avocado
1 ripe banana
1 tray ice cubes
1–2 cups water
Stevia, to taste
Optional: Sprinkle dried, shredded coconut on top.
