Green Smoothie Crazy!

27 Apr

For anyone who follows me on Twitter [ @ WeHeartVegan ] or Instagram [ @ WeHeartVegan ], you’ll know that for the past week I have been going green smoothie crazy (:

So here’s the two recipes that I am crazy head-over-heels for this week!!!

Detoxing Green Romaine Smoothie

Serves 2

3/4 cup water

1/4 cup cherry juice (or any type of juice)

1 head romaine lettuce

1 medium cucumber

1 Tbsp. chia seeds

3/4 cup frozen strawberries

1 small frozen banana (use 2 if you’re new to green smoothies)

1 Tbsp. vegan protein powder (this is optional)

Directions:

Put all in a high powered blender according to the blenders directions. Blend and enjoy!

Green Swiss Chard Heaven

Serves 2

1 cup water

2 large leaves Swiss chard (about 2 packed cups)

1 medium cucumber

3/4 cup frozen strawberries

1 small banana

1 Tbsp. chia seeds

Juice from 1/2 lime

1 Tbsp. vegan protein powder (optional)

Directions:

Put all in a high powered blender according to the blenders directions. Blend and enjoy!

These may be two servings, but you can easily drink the whole thing yourself!! Divide it between two tight sealing containers (like mason jars), drink one, and bring the other on the go! Drink green smoothies all morning to feel at your best. Trust me.
