Today was great! I guess I know how to make a party out of anything. Me and a few ladies met up at our local farmer’s market to select some leafy greens to put in the blender. This was an intro to green smoothies for all of them. As for why green smoothies, you can check out articles one and two on that right here on the blog.
Fortunately it was a beautiful sunny day to take our time and pick out some nutritious edibles. We went for curly kale, spinach, and dino kale. And then we headed to the kitchen, which was stocked with all we needed.
Add ins included maca powder, hemp powder, and chia seeds. The ladies went for the hemp powder, but reported it as grainy.
The combinations we came up with were the following:
Cucumber mint mango avocado ginger with spinach, pineapple orange juice and agave syrup – it was a keeper.
Sweet potato peach with almond milk and dino kale – not ever doing that again. I tried to salvage it, and actually it’s in the fridge because I won’t give up. LOL
Strawberry banana peach blueberry with juice and kale – it was tasty but too thin.
Peanut butter banana kale with flaxseed milk and agave syrup – this was hands down the winner!! And of course this recipe was created by my little one. Kids always know how to cover up veggies if given the chance.
What’s your favorite green smoothie?
