Green Superfood Incredible Smoothie!

Hi everyone! I just enjoyed the leftovers from my morning green smoothie, and as I licked my lips and wished I wasn't too lazy to make another one, I figured it would be the perfect day to share the recipe with you. It's getting warmer out, and there is nothing better than a cool, refreshing, "so healthy your cells will sing" smoothie. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants, protein and countless other good for you things. Not to mention flavor! My smoothies taste so good that my friends who have never even heard of half of the ingredients decide they like them after one sip. I promise. So with that promise, I give you the base of my Green Power Smoothie:

1/2 banana (or more)
1/2 avocado (or more) (This and the banana make it creamy)
1/2 cucumber (or more)
4 or 5 stalks of kale, take stem off
Big handful or two of any other kind of lettuce
Green powder (I put this in every other day) Green Vibrance is the brand I use- it's great, and not as expensive as some others
Blueberries or frozen mango or whatever fruit appeals to me at the moment I make it (throw in a handful or so)
Protein powder (I use rice protein, enzymatically separated, vanilla or plain flavor, or hemp protein)
Hemp seeds (If I feel that I need a bit more protein, I throw in a tbsp or 2)
1/2 tsp green stevia powder for sweetener (the green is less processed)
Almond milk
Dash of cinnamon
Water- fill the blender so the water comes to about 1/2 way up to the greens if you want it thicker, and more if you want it thinner

Sometimes I throw in a superfood or two such as maca (for calming), chlorella (for circulation), goji berries or spirulina (protein and immune defense) if I'm feeling it. I throw in other stuff too, like celery, or carrot juice, coconut water (instead of almond milk), cayenne pepper, pumpkin.... to mix it up, or if I know something will go bad if I don't use it soon! Mix it up and have fun- you really can't go wrong.

Hope you enjoy drinking to your health!


  1. Wow! I had no idea you had a blog! What an interesting recipe for a super healthy sounding drink. I will most definitely try that one out. Thanks!

  2. Thanks Currie! I just started this a few months ago, but I have no idea how to "market" it and share it with others. So if you have ay ideas, let me know!
