I have a delicious green smoothie recipe for you today! Green smoothies are a huge part of the cleanse I am currently on and something that is a staple of my diet anyway. I am always looking for new flavors of smoothie so I can keep it interesting and tasty.
- 2 large handfuls torn kale (at least 2 cups)
- Handful of washed strawberries (5-6)
- 1 scoop raw, vegan protein powder (I used Sunwarrior), optional
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup almond milk
Blend all ingredients together until smooth. For a thicker shake, use less almond milk.
Why double up on the fats (chia & coconut oil)? Well, did you know that coconut oil acts as a potentiator for chia seeds, meaning it makes the omega-3s and nutrients in the chia even more beneficial to your body. Plus chia adds a little extra fiber to this smoothie and coconut oil is beneficial to your metabolism as well as beauty (bonus!).
