Raw Food: Favorite Smoothies

June 29, 2014

Smoothies are a large part of my day. I always start my mornings out with one, often end my lunch with one and sometimes even have one for dinner. They’re simple to make, you can pack all sorts of nutrients into them and they are handy when you’re short on time. I can’t really imagine myself eating as many if we still lived in Seattle, the California sunshine and vast organic produce availability is definitely encouraging.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite smoothies and their sources. I tend to find things I like and stick to them, on repeat. 🙂 Happy blending!

1. Cacao Turmeric Smoothie
-My absolute favorite. I have literally eaten one of these every single day for the last two months. It’s a little crazy, I know.

2. Cherry Almond Smoothie -Tastes like Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia, no joke. Minus the massive calories. 

Recipe // 1 cup of water, handful of almonds, tablespoon of chia seeds, small bag of frozen cherries, 1 banana, 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, ice. Blend together, add more ice or water for desired consistency.

3. Kiwi & Almond Green Smoothie-One of my favorite discoveries when it comes to green smoothies. Add almond butter and kiwi, it changes the game.

Recipe// 1 cup water, 1 mango, 1 green apple, 1/2 cucumber, 2 celery stalks, 1 banana, 1 kiwi, a bunch of spinach, 1 tablespoon almond butter. Blend together, add ice or water for desired consistency.
