A smoothie is great for a quick nutritious breakfast, or a healthy pick-me-up anytime during the day. They are also a yummilicious way to satisfy cravings, and get more greens and fruits into your day. Pick one or more items from each section, and blend with ice. These are just some ideas to get you going. Use your imagination, and you can make some fabulous creations! For example:
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie – 1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin, 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 banana, pumpkin pie spice, 1 scoop vanilla rice protein.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup: 1Tbsp raw cacao powder, handful baby spinach or scoop of greens powder, banana, 1 Tbsp organic peanut butter, 1 cup coconut or other non-dairy milk. Add a date for extra sweetness.
Carrot Cake Smoothie: raw carrot (puree with water), 1 Tbsp walnuts, 1 cup coconut milk, ½ tsp vanilla, cinnamon, ½ banana, 1 Tbsp raisins or 1 date, 1 tsp coconut oil.
