I’m hoping to get you on the Green Smoothie train. Smoothies rock in so many ways – they are easy, quick, full of whole foods, and please little kids and big kids alike. If you need to sneak more green vegetables into your son, daughter, husband, or self here is the way to do it.
I’m sharing my two favorite green smoothies. They are both vegan, gluten free, and contain some healthy fat and protein so you are filled up and satisfied. The joy of smoothies is that they are ever adaptable so please get creative and toss your favorites into the blender. Here are the two best green smoothies…
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup mango chunks (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (like squeezed from oranges)
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup kale leaves
2 tablespoons almond butter
Simply blend until smooth.
PS. If you live somewhere warm both make delicious frozen green smoothie pops!
