Tahini Berry Green Smoothie

Hi there!  Even though I make a smoothie (or two) every morning I rarely make the exact same thing twice.  I have a basic formula that I follow, but the rest depends on what greens, seeds, nut milks, and fresh/frozen fruit I have on hand.  This was one of those mornings where I was filling the blender up with the first thing that caught my eye and ended up with a really delicious concoction.


Tahini Berry Green Smoothie

1 banana
1 cup frozen berries (mine were cherries, blueberries, marionberries, and raspberries)
2 handfuls spinach
2 tablespoons tahini
1 1/2 cups almond milk (or more or less depending on how thick you like it)

Blend until smooth and enjoy.



So, it doesn't look green but it does have a fair amount of greens inside.  And the tahini berry flavor combo is really wonderful.  You should try it.

Hope you're having a great week!

  5. I either left the same comment six times or left no comment at all. Either way, I apologize.

  6. Oh yum. I love tahini on pretty much anything. I've had it with apricot jam but not berries! That sounds pretty great.It's funny - there are so many random smoothie concoctions and everyone's just like "ah I threw this this and this in" and they almost always come out delicious. The perfect food?

  8. Just like with oats, I've never thrown tahini in a smoothie! But since I drink the things every morning I definitely have to try that.

    1. That's how I ended up trying it. The tahini was sitting next to the blender and the next thing I knew.... :)
