When I was at my brother’s house a few weeks ago, he excitedly introduced us to his favorite breakfast, which is now in my rotation. Sylvia loves these, too — just like she loved the Mean Green juice when Brent talked me into a juice fast. It’s pretty much just fruits and vegetables for breakfast, but tastes more decadent.
Uncle Brent’s Patented Moon Smoothie
2 peeled, frozen bananas, cut into chunks
2 cups cold water
A big handful of greens, chopped into large chunks*
1 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. cinnamon
Some sweetener (a tiny scoop of stevia, a package of Splenda, a tsp. or so of honey, etc.)
4 cups ice
Put everything but the ice in a blender and blend until smooth. Then add the ice cubes a couple at a time to thicken the smoothie. Fight Sylvia, moon smoothie junkie, for the biggest glass.
* If you use mild greens like chard or spinach, you can use a really big handful. Stronger-tasting greens like kale will flavor the smoothie, so you have to go a little lighter unless you like the tast of a chocolate-kale smoothie.
