Super Green Smoothie

The last thing I want to do is waste food, so this smoothie looks a bit different each time. Always start with a liquid base of water and/or coconut water. Next up berries: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries…whatever’s in the fridge – just work with what ya got! Always throw in a banana to give it that creamy texture. Then of course greens are also a smoothie staple. They’re great because you and your littles won’t even be able to taste them. Last, (optional step) add fruit that’s about to go bad – pineapple, mango, pear, etc. I slice and freeze these to add that extra sweetness and to assure nothing goes to waste.

INGREDIENTS:

For the kids:

  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Coconut water
  • 2 handfuls of any green (spinach, kale, romaine, etc.)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • 1/2 cup of any berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries)
  • Heaping tbsp. of any nut or granola butter
  • Date or 1 tbsp. maple syrup

For me (same recipe as above but also with) :

PROCESS:

  • Place ingredients in blender
  • Blend and enjoy!

    Delicious! Been making these every morning and so good! Also added a little fresh ginger and spices it up a bit!

    I have been drinking this everyday for a week! Feeling great! I am using the exact spirulina you suggested and exact ingredients but mine doesnt look that dark green when I am done. Is there something I am doing wrong? Otherwise thank you!

    do you recommend any other powders to have in the morning? such as morning complete or a powder as such? to get rid of bloating and keep high energy levels? or just stick to Spirulina?

    Hi! Have you tried spirulina tablets? Do you think they are as effective as the powder?

    I’ve been using Vega protein and greens in my smoothies would the Spirulina replace the Vega I would like to try this?

    For food combining purposes, is it ok to add nut butter to fruit and greens smoothies?
