"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
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
I was first inspired by a blogger to embark upon the world of Green Smoothies, because....
I used to HATE them.
I was just doing it all wrong... she opened up my world to allow the creativity of green smoothies recipes to flow out of me.
This is one recipe that is tried and true for me. So easy and delicious!
SUPER GREEN SHAKE!
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 (This is the secret ingredient to making it great)
Tbl. of Supergreens Powder (I use Sunwarrior Natural Supergreens)
1 tea. matcha powder (optional)
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!
