Long before discovering the awesomeness of cold-pressed juices, I was a dedicated smoothie drinker. Recently, I have been adding this blended treat back into my life and I’m loving every green sip of it.
Nothing can compare to the nutrient punch from a cold-pressed juice, but smoothies have their place too! Here's my favorite green smoothie recipe.
1 large frozen banana (peel your bananas before freezing)
3 medjool dates, pitted
2 tbsp cacao nibs
1.5 cups of frozen spinach
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
dash of sea salt, cayenne or cinnamon to taste
**I use frozen ingredients because I don’t have an ice maker. You can definitely use fresh and then add a cup of ice to give your smoothie a nice cold, frothy consistency.
Powdered Greens: I love Green Vibrance for its incredible probiotic and digestive enzymes strength.
Protein Powder: My go-to protein powder is Epic because it is a raw, organic, powerful plant protein that tastes great.
