Day 14 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Strawberry Orange Basil Smoothie

This ones definitely a keeper!  My son has watched me make our morning green smoothies for the last couple of days, and hen he saw strawberries and oranges he started begging for a sip.   Thank goodness it did not disappoint!  You know its good when a 10-year-old says, “I want one everyday”!

Today I added a scoop of Essante Super Reds Powder which is a powerful patented organic, pH balanced, bio-available, antioxidant,  rich nutrition & supplementation. It is made from 100% certified organic super fruits, OPE’s & adaptogens has one of the highest ORAC scores known. It is great to know that I am giving my son amazing nutrition, energy, longevity and unmatched immunity in a simple green smoothie filled with fruits and veggies!

Strawberry Orange Basil Green Smoothie

Strawberry Orange Basil Smoothie

1/2 Cup Fresh or Frozen Strawberries (or blueberries)
1 orange, peeled
1 Handful of Basil or Parsley
½ Rib of Celery
1 tbsp. Hemp or Chia Seeds *optional
1 Cup of Coconut Water or Water

Instructions: Wash all your produce. Chop and put into blender with a small amount of liquid to start. Add more as needed until you reach your desired consistency.

 

Like always, I used Coconut Almond Milk and it blended up nice and thick, added spinach for my greens and added no seeds. I thought there was definitely a strong “celery” taste, which is surprising since it only called for 1/2 a rib.  Also, frozen strawberries will yield a better flavor than fresh in my opinion, so if you have time … freeze them.
