Inspired by the popular name Angela Liddon gave her famous green smoothies, I have created my own personal Green Monster Sundae. Now you can enjoy all the sweetness and deliciousness of a sundae, with the benefits of the almighty vegetable containing almost every single nutrient: SPINACH.
This baby is super simple to make and will keep you full of energy for hours. Who needs coffee in the mornings when you have this? Here’s a tip: ditch the caffeine and turn to spinach. AND this tastes like dessert. So you’re basically having dessert for breakfast. It’s a win win; who could say no to that?
And if you’re scared to try this because it’s green (most people fear the green), I’m telling you right now; YOU CAN’T EVEN TASTE IT. I swear spinach doesn’t even have a specific flavour. To me, this just tastes like peanut butter and bananas with chocolate. mmmmmm.
I also added my favourite super powders from Organic Burst for extra nutrients. You can see the powders here.
And to top it off, I added chocolate sauce and Blend Co. skin sprinkle. The link for Blend Co. is here.
- 3-4 frozen bananas bananas
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 tsp. peanut butter
- .5 tsp of each superpowder (wheatgrass, baobab, maca, spirulina)
- 1 tsp. cacao powder
- 1 tsp. almond milk
- 1 tsp. maple syrup
- Prior to making your Sundae, you're going to want to cut up and freeze bananas. Make sure they are ripe and spotty (that's when the have the best digestion and most antioxidants) I usually do this at night time and freeze a lot at a time so that I have some ready when I need them.
- In the morning, or whenever you're about to make your Sundae, remove the bananas from the freezer and add them to a high speed food processor. (Don't try using a small or weak blender as it could result in a broken blade or motor)
- Pulse bananas into little chunks, then add in your spinach. I find that my food processor leaves chunks of spinach, so prior to adding it in, I blend the spinach separately in my mini blender with a TINY bit of water, then once I have a green liquid, I pour it into the frozen bananas and blend again.
- Next, add in 1 tsp. of peanut butter, and whatever super powders you desire.
- Blend everything together well until you have a smooth creamy ice-cream texture.
- Scoop into a bowl or cup, and pour chocolate sauce, which is just 1 tsp of cacao powder, almond milk, and maple syrup mixed together well. (may take 3 mins of stirring to get the perfect consistency)
- If you have a strong food processor, you can just add your frozen fruit and pulse until you reach a creamy ice-cream consistency. I wouldn’t advise trying to make these if you don’t have a food processor.
- Also, you may add a little bit more almond milk to help with the consistency if they are really frozen.
- Usually I just scoop it straight from the food processor into my glass, but if I have other things to prepare, like fruit or sauce, I stick it in the freezer to keep it cool until I’m ready to decorate it.
- If you prefer a more frozen texture, add less liquids and serve right away. I sometimes like mine as more of a soft serve, so I add more liquids.
