Super Green Smoothies

We love our super greens and have tried many different kinds of greens.  Fresh were cumbersome and created a lot of waste since we don’t have garden space for compost.  Some green powder was like eating hay out of the bale wagon on the ranch.  Some were just not appetizing so was hard to swallow every morning.  Then we visited our naturopath and was so excited to learn about adding blueberries to our smoothie.  We added an appetizing color of purple, anti-oxidants, natural sweetener and help with our memory, because that is what blueberries can do.  So now I have this tasty recipe to share with you.

Blueberry green smoothie

In a blender add the following: This recipe will serve 3 adults

2 cups of any flavor 100% juice – start with orange then try something different later

3 scoops of super greens – we have found Green Vibrance to be one of the best we have tried.

1 banana

1/2 cup of frozen  blueberries

1 Tbsp honey

Blend until all is blended well.  You may have to use a scraper to get everything to blend well.   Make sure to keep the scraper high so as not to hit the blades of the blender.

Pour into glasses and enjoy.

Some additions or substitutions:

Apple juice, coconut milk, kombucha

frozen peaches, strawberries, pineapple, mandarin oranges

We like honey the best for sweetener but have tried xylitol, sugar, and date sugar.
