Favorite Green Smoothie
Author: Nicole at mydeliciousdream.com
Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 10 mins
Ingredients
  • 1 large leaf or several small leaves of kale (thick stems removed)
  • handful of baby spinach
  • a small handful of almonds or walnuts (about 8-10 nuts)
  • 1 T. chia seeds
  • 1 carrot
  • handful of blueberries or raspberries (I usually use frozen)
  • cinnamon to taste
  • lemon or vanilla liquid stevia to taste (I use about 1-1/2 droppers for two smoothies)
  • ¼ to ½ cup almond milk (I use homemade raw)
  • 2 T. raw hemp protein powder
  • water (amount depends on how thick you want the smoothie)
Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
Notes
If you don't have flavored stevia, you can use plain and add lemon juice or vanilla extract or use agave (or try it without sweetener and see how you like it). If I don't have almond milk handy, I have used only water before, which works fine, or sometimes I use coconut milk, which is not raw, but has a great flavor. For variation, I also sometimes add in ingredients like shredded coconut, almond butter, grapes, and raw cacao powder (yes, I like to try chocolate with everything!).
