"Lovely Day" Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie 

Makes about 4-5 cups (depending on the amount of bananas you put in)

Make Organic. Almond Milk (So Easy) 2 cups (see below if interested)

Frozen Organic Bananas (2-3) (broken into thirds, frozen night before)

Fresh or Frozen Organic Strawberries (Fresh is preferred)

1 heaping Tbl. Organic Sunflower Seed Butter (I like Once Again Creamy - lightly sweetened)

1/4 c. Org. Cacao Powder (I like the Navitas brand)

Vegan Protein Powder - chocolate flavor - (I love the Sunwarrior Protein Powders )

Add Ice cubes

Blend on high 

I like to blend the mixture after each ingredient to make sure it gets all added in.

Take it on the go!  

 

Organic Raw Almonds Milk - 2 servings - 

(I get a bag from Sprouts but you can get these at Whole Foods, or your local health stores)

Handful of Raw Almonds in the blender (approx. 1/4 c. (light)- 1/2 c. (thick) 

4 cups of pure water

Blend on high for 15-20 sec

Strain with a Nut Milk Bag or other fine type of strainer

Done! 

This recipe will make 4 cups of almond milk ( I only use 2 cups in my smoothies, so if you make the full batch you will have an extra)

To make 8 cups of almond milk use at least 1/2 c.-1 c. almonds - depending on how thick and creamy you want it

 

 

Supergreen Shake!

I want to give a shout out to Green Smoothie Girl (Blogger) who first inspired me to embark upon the world of Green Smoothies, because....

I used to HATE them.

I was just doing it all wrong... everyone else I knew was doing it wrong, too.  Once, she helped me out with a basic recipe, I hit the ground running with my creativity of green smoothies.  Thank you, Green Smoothie Girl!

 

This is one recipe that is tried and true for me.  So easy and delicious!

 

2 cups almond milk (recipe above), (can use water but won't be as creamy)

2 -3 Frozen bananas  (2 will be thinner, 3 will be more shake like)

Handful of fresh greens, Kale, spinach or moringa (as pictured), (don't use lettuce, not a good fit)

1 -2 tbl. of Organic Nut butter (Once Again is a great brand)

Tbl. of Supergreens Powder (I use Sunwarrior Natural Supergreens)

1 tea. matcha powder

1 scoop (approx. 3 tbl.) Vanilla Protein Powder (I love Sunwarrior Vanilla Protein Powder)

3-4 ice cubes

Blend after adding each ingredient, blend until smooth. 

 

Enjoy!  Would love to hear your comments about this smoothie, and what creativity you bring to this smoothie!
