High Fat Green Smoothie
If you don't know by now, I don't eat fruit and I eat a lot of fat! This smoothie recipe is a perfect representation of that. Fat sustains our bodies longer than sugar and it also doesn't spike insulin, which allows our bodies to burn more fat. Eating a high fat diet has helped me balance my blood sugar and curb sugar cravings. I don't eat fruit because I'm intolerant to it but I still advise my clients to not to overdo it and be aware of how much your putting into your smoothies, as fruit filled smoothies can easily have as much sugar as a soda!

Instructions
  1. Ahead of time, I steam a bunch of spinach for smoothies. I put the steamed spinach in cupcake tins, freeze it, then 24 hours later pop them out and into a bag which I keep in the freezer until use! I like doing this because I can get more spinach into my smoothies, and it also helps to add something else that's frozen besides ice since I don't use frozen fruit.
  2. Add everything to a blender and blend away! If your protein powder isn't that sweet you can always add a couple dates or a tablespoon of honey for taste.
