ISRAELI TAHINI SMOOTHIE

This is another version of our Simple Green Smoothie — but with a twist of chocolate (yes, chocolate!) tahini. If you are not familiar with tahini, it is a paste made with roasted and pressed sesame seeds. It is nutritionally dense, with one tablespoon containing 95 calories, 9 grams of fat (83% healthy fat), 1.5 grams of carb, and 3 grams of protein. You do not need a lot to enjoy the smooth flavor and delight tahini can bring to a recipe. This recipe can be a satisfying breakfast or a delicious mid-day pick-me-up. What makes it Israeli? The product of tahini I use is from Soom — a company born in Philadelphia by way of Israel and owned by 3 sisters💜💚💕

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup frozen fruit — any combination like 1/2 cup strawberries + 1/2 cup mango; or banana blueberries, pineapple, raspberries, etc.
  • 1 cup nonfat milk or milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt plain
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate tahini

Instructions
 

  • Toss all the ingredients in the blender and blend for about a minute. (Tip: If your blender is not super powerful, blend the spinach with the milk first, then add the rest of the ingredients.)
  • Pour into glasses and serve.
  • Garnish with your chosen fruit.

Notes

Makes 1–2 servings — depending on if it is a full meal or a​snack🙂.
