Healthy Freelancer’s Recipe: Simple Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling the greatest after the holidays. I need to get back to my healthy eating strategy, so I’ve been working on that this week.

Each day I’ve been making a smoothie to boost my nutrition intake. This is the simple starter recipe I’m using:


  • almond milk
  • 1 small banana
  • a handful of spinach
  • 1 egg
  1. Put ingredients in a blender.
  2. Cover and blend everything well, adding ice if desired.

To this, I might add some other goodies, such as a few slices of cucumber or carrot, frozen berries, or a peach and Romaine lettuce.

It’s all about keeping it clean and healthy.

Looking for other smoothie recipes?

  • Banana-Blueberry Smoothie (If you eat dairy.)
  • Pineapple-Spinach Smoothie
  • This and That Smoothie (Use what you have on hand.)

Smoothies are quick and easy to make. When the blender has been emptied, put a squirt of dish detergent in it with some water, cover and give it a whirl, and then wash the container and the cover. Easy-peasy.

Join me in getting back on track nutrition-wise.
