Healthy Green Smoothie
My facebook friends demanded the recipe for the smoothie I'm helding at the picture, when I posted it this morning.
The truth is... I don't have one or a single recipe, because I add and change ingredients every time, according to what I have available or what I feel like in terms of taste or even what purpose I have in mind. There are some "basic" ingredients and I do try to add the following:
1 type of vegetable
1 type of fruit (usually berries)
1 protein source (plant or algae protein)
1 healthy fat (nuts,seeds or liquid omega-3's) and
1 liquid (coconut water or milk alternative)
So, since we're talking about eating "clean" for the beginning of the year, I thought about a smoothie I usually make with detoxifying purpose in mind.
Detox Green Protein Smoothie
2-3 kale leaves (or 1 cup of spinach or other dark green leafy vegetable)
1/2 cup of goji berries (or other berries, frozen or fresh)
1/3 cup of spirulina/chlorella protein powder (or other good quality mix)
1/4 cup of hemp seeds
2 medjool dates
1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup of cold coconut water
1/2-1 cup of ice
Blend everything and enjoy for breakfast or lunch!!!
