I absolutely love my green smoothies. I go through fazes of loving a specific combination but this is one I tend to fall back on and is my go to for all occasions. If you are new to green smoothies it’s a good idea to start with greens such as spinach or romaine lettuce that have very little taste, and then move yourself up to kale, swiss chard and mixed leafy greens. Start with two cups of greens and move your way up to three as your taste buds adjust. For this recipe I used greens from my garden which consisted of two types of kale and some swiss chard. Make sure when you are using kale you take the leafy part off of the spine which will make the taste far less bitter. And of course adjusting the amount of spirulina and chlorella if it is too strong. I have been drinking my greens in juices and smoothies for many years and I enjoy the more savoury flavour of the greens but if your starting off take it slow and find your happy medium.
Green Goddess Smoothie :
1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
1/2 of a ripe banana sliced
1 scoop of vanilla plant-based protein powder
1 tsp of spirulina
1 tsp of chlorella
2-3 packed cups of greens of your choice.
Blend it all up in blender really well adding water as you go to get the consistency of your liking. Start with 1/3 cup of water and add more as you need it. Enjoy!
