I've been getting back into green smoothies lately. I first started making them, ohhh maybe 5 years ago. Wow time goes fast! I would bring one into work every morning and I'd get alot of disgusted looks from co-workers as I sipped it down. Yeah, they may not look pretty appetizing, but I swear it IS possible to make them pretty tasty!
Go-to Green Smoothie
1 cup Kale (you can use other greens such as spinach or even lettuce)
1 cup coconut milk or rice milk
1 frozen banana
2/3 cup frozen blueberries (or any frozen berries)
1/2 scoop vegetarian protein powder, I use Precision Vanilla Vegetarian Protein
sweetener to taste - Xylitol, stevia, maple syrup, agave, or honey
I use a magic bullet to make my smoothies, although in my dreams I make them with a Vitamix blender, gotta start saving for that! Because the magic bullet is a bit small to fit all the ingredients in at once, I do it in steps:
- First blend the Kale and coconut milk
- Add the banana and frozen blueberries. Blend.
- Add more coconut milk if it's not smooth enough.
- Add the protein powder and sweetener and blend again! Done!
If you have a larger blender, just throw all the ingredients in and blend.
