Day 13 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Avocado Dreamin Strawberry Smoothie

OK … This was the worst one yet, Nasty, Nasty!   Of course, I don’t like avocados, so that might have something to do with it…  Took one sip and passed it on to my hubby.  He looked at it and said it looked like baby poo — of course, he had some other choice words, but “poo” is the most family friendly!   Surprisingly, he said it wasn’t all that bad …

Avocado Dreamin Strawberry Smoothie

½ Large Avocado
1 Cup Strawberries (or frozen blueberries)
1 tsp. Spirulina (optional)
1 tsp. Chia Seeds or Hemp Seeds
1 Cup Spinach or Kale (or green of your choice)
1 Cup Coconut Water, Water or Almond Milk

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.

 

Keeping with tradition, I used Coconut Almond Milk and no Spirulina or Seeds.  I bought a Costco size bag of Organic Spinach last week, so that is my green veggie of choice for now.

Day 12 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Citrus Immune Booster Smoothie

It’s a dinner smoothie kinda day here in the Hooper House!  Left for the gym early this morning and been running around ever since.   Friday’s always seem to be like that for me…

As with many of the other recipes, this one called for water, but being the rebel I am (ya right!), I used Coconut Almond Milk and it blended up great! I really liked this one … the citrus was definitely strong, but that was good! I added spinach for my greens and only used about 1/2 a lime.   It was a bit warm, not as cold as I like … but likely because I only had 1/2 a frozen banana and had to use fresh for the other 1/2!
