My Favorite Green Smoothie

Really? Yes. One of the blogs I follow declared it is national green smoothie day and I thought ..what a perfect time to post this delicious start to the day!

Green Smoothie you say, How can that be anything I would want to drink?

Because it has under 300 calories, 40 grams of protein and makes your body hum with satisfaction!

This recipe is vegan, raw, grain free, dairy free and sugar free, it covers a lot of current food trends!

You will need a powerful blender: Vitamix or Ninja are really good.

Ingredients:

2 cups almond milk

1 cup fresh blueberries. I like to freeze mine overnight and use them like ice cubes.

2 cups loose packed raw spinach leaves

1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted

1 scoop PLANTFUSION vanilla protein mix ( all plant based)

bee pollen

coconut water

Add in this order to the blender:

Almond milk, protein powder, spinach, avocado and blueberries.

Pulse to combine and then puree at the highest speed for one minute.

Check the mix and if it is too thick, thin it with the coconut water to your liking.

Pour into a glass and sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon bee pollen.
