Have I mentioned how much fun I had on my trip to Chicago? If you missed it, check out the Kitchari recipe and my other post (ahem…do I have to tell you there is a 30% coupon code in that post that expires on Sunday). It was a blast at the Kenmore Blogger Summit and I really learned a lot and there was plenty of tasty food too.
I love green smoothies and this one was really good. It had lots of new ingredients in it that makes it extremely healthy. I wish I could remember all the details about each ingredient, but I don’t…just trust me. However, one that that I already knew that was mentioned was that if you are looking to make a small change to organic produce, start with your berries. They hold a lot of the pesticides in and produce with a peel keeps a lot of stuff out (think banana, pineapple, orange, apple, etc) as long as you peel it.
I’ve linked to the ingredients that are a bit unusual. Check them out. I challenge you to try this smoothie or at least add in one of the “new” ingredients.
- ½ cup Hemp Milk
- Splash of water
- 1 tbl Chia Seeds
- ½ tbl Maca Powder
- ½ c. organic raspberries
- ½ c. organic strawberries
- 1 Tangelo, peeled
- 4 leaves of Kale
- Fresh mint to taste
- Place all ingredients in blender. Process on high for a minute or two or until drink is smooth.
