Spencer’s Smoothie

Vegan MoFo

SpencerMy dear canine companion, Spencer, has passed away. He lived a good, long 12 years and while he lived with my great aunt and was not technically mine, he holds a place deep in my heart. I lived with my great aunt for 9 months after I graduated college and I totally and completely fell in love with Spencer. A wily and beguiling cockapoo with a penchant for cuddling and being the center of attention, he quickly became the best part of my day. When I would come home from work he’d be waiting for me with hugs and kisses. He also loved the breakfast smoothies I would make. I would always pour some in his bowl for him. And in honor of him I’d like to post a smoothie recipe which I will always remember him by.

Spencer’s Smoothie

Makes 1 serving


1/3 cup frozen mangoes

1/3 cup frozen peaches

1/2 a banana

1 cup kale

1 tablespoon flax meal

1 tablespoon almond butter

1 cup almond milk


Add the banana and kale into blender first, so there’s something soft for the blades to work on. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
