Pistachio Smoothie/Ice Cream

I did a shopping tour at Costco yesterday and at the end the Vitamix “guy” was there so we stuck around for a demo. He made a pistachio ice cream but it used a couple of non-maximized living approved ingredients. I decided to modify it and give it a try. It turned out amazing! You will definitely need a vitamix or something equally powerful.

You won’t believe how delicious this is!

Makes about 3 medium smoothies

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups full fat coconut milk
Large handful organic spinach
Handful shelled pistachios (I was surprised that roasted salted pistachios worked well. If you can find raw pistachios use them!)
1/2 avocado
2 -3 scoops Perfect Protein
2 cups ice
More stevia to taste (I used one of the mini scoops in the Kal brand pure stevia)

Blend everything together using the plunger. This can be eaten with a straw or spoon.
