Start the new year off right and promote healthy longevity with this recipe

If your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthy, start the year off right by trying this delicious smoothie! Whether it’s for you or a loved one, it’s sure to please.

We use a Vitamix blender whenever possible for all of our smoothies-the texture of the smoothie is silky smooth!  You can use frozen fruit if you don’t have fresh fruit, but you might need more water to thin out the smoothie.

Yield: One 12-16 oz smoothie

Ingredients

  •       ½ frozen banana
  •       ½ cup frozen mango pieces
  •       ½ tsp matcha tea powder
  •       ½ cup spinach
  •       1 small piece of lime
  •       ¾ cup non-dairy milk
  •       Agave to taste

Preparation

Put all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth (this is where the Vitamix blender really comes in handy). Pour into a glass and it’s ready to drink!

As we age, our nutritional needs change, which sometimes means needing to eat more simple, easy to digest foods. Creating delicious pureed foods for seniors can sometimes be tricky, but this smoothie is a favorite among many of our clients, so are excited to share it with you!
