So this year I’ve really loved drinking smoothies, eating these amazing vegan recipes and I this one I found online really hit me I LOVED IT! Thought I would share it on here for all y’all!
-1/4 ripe avocado
-2 medium ripe bananas, previously sliced and frozen
-1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries (organic when possible) – use strawberries/raspberries for a greener smoothie, darker berries for a purple smoothie
-2 large handfuls spinach (organic when possible)
-1 small handful kale (organic when possible), large stems removed
-1 1/2 – 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (will depend on if your berries are frozen)
-1 Tbsp flax seed meal
-Optional: 2 Tbsp salted creamy almond or peanut butter
-Roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
-Raw or roasted nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.)
-Shredded unsweetened coconut
-Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Add more almond milk (or water) to thin.
-Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more ripe banana (or maple syrup) for added sweetness, more spinach for a bright green hue, or almond milk for creaminess.
-For the green smoothie I used strawberries, which let the green color come through more. For the purple bowl I used darker berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries).
-For more protein, add nut butter! This also offsets / enhances the natural sweetness of the smoothie.
-Divide between 2 serving bowls and top with desired toppings!
-Best when fresh, though leftovers can be kept in jars in the fridge for up to 1-2 days.
