Green Protein Smoothie
This Smoothie is a great breakfast for those days when:
- You really can't be bothered making breakfast;
- You have fussy eaters who won't eat meat or vegetables (this was both of my children);
- You are in a hurry to get out the door;
- All of the above!
I make bulk of this smoothie & then the kids & I can snack on it during the day. It's great for a 3pm Sugar Craving fix.
Add anything extra that you like to this smoothie, I've tried to keep it simple, but sometimes I can have over 15 ingredients in our smoothies. See how inventive you are feeling!
Ingredients (Makes 4-5 Servings - you can half the quantities or save the leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow):
1 large handful of almonds or cashews,
3 drops of Lemon Young Living Essential Oil
3 Handfuls of Spinach/Kale/Lettuce;
1 Lebanese Cucumber,
1 Banana (Overripe are best) or ripe pear;
1 Cup of Ice;
4 Cups of Liquid - I use water. Coconut water or nut milk are really nice too.
Place all ingredients into Blender/Thermomix & Blend on high speed for 1 minute (Speed 9 for Thermomix users).
Serve into a Large glass & Enjoy. Sprinkle with Chia seeds or coconut if you are feeling adventurous! I pour the extra into Glass Jars, so that my hubby & I can grab & go when we are in a hurry. Sprinkle with Chia seeds or coconut if you are feeling adventurous!
Please let me know if you make this, I'd love to hear your feedback!
