This original green smoothie is Laurentine's go-to combination for breakfast or as a snack that both the kids and parents can enjoy. You can use this recipe as a template and substitute each element depending on the ingredients you have on hand.
In this particular recipe, Laurentine uses coconut milk, avocado, and banana to give the smoothie a creamy texture - this also helps mask any bitterness from the spinach, which is helpful for those first-time green smoothie drinkers.
To sweeten the blend, you can use dates, berries, or another kind of natural sweetener that you have available to you.
