Green Glow Smoothie

We are back for the next addition of Good Food Fridays, where I share not only time saving recipes, but healthy at that! 

I've been working on this one for a while now, so I hope you enjoy it- not only for the taste, but the amazing health benefits. There's a plethora of good fats in this smoothie- which is good for keeping a slim waist line as well as a healthy nervous system- and good greens to amp up your energy levels, and alkalize the body (which is very much needed these days). Also, I've added ginger to this smoothie to rev up your immune system, metabolism and it's also anti-inflammatory in every way possible.

Green Glow
Step 1:

Gather all of your ingredients!

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (I prefer frozen over fresh for this recipe, but if you want to add fresh blueberries add some ice cubes!)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 big handfuls of spinach
  • 1/4 c hemp hearts
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp spirulina
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1-2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2- 1 inch of ginger (depending on your taste)
  • 1-1 & 1/2 c of water (depending on how thick/ thin you like it)
And sweetener of choice if needed. I personally find this is sweet enough with banana and blueberries.

Step 2:

Put all ingredients into blender. Look at that deliciousness!

Step 3:

Enjoy! Pretty simple, right?
