Recipe: Green Power Smoothie!

A delicious green smoothie feel of nutrients, fiber to keep you full, and tastes delicious.  Seriously, even my two year old drinks them.

I use frozen fruits and veggies just because its cheaper and easier.

Put all in a blender:
1 frozen banana,
handful of frozen mango chunks,
a few heaping handfuls of frozen kale or spinach,
a scoop of wheatgrass powder (find at a health food store/whole foods...amazing benefits!)
a tablespoon of spirulina powder (find at a health food store/whole foods...amazing benefits!)
4 tbs hemp protein powder,
good sprinkle of chia seeds (find at a health food store/whole foods...amazing benefits!)
1/4 the size of the blender of Trader Joes tropical carrot juice (I find this really adds a nice flavor, add more to taste)
and then fill to top of blender with water.
Adjust amounts according to your taste.  Wheatgrass and Spirulina can take a little while to get used to so you may want to add less at first and with each smoothie try to add a little more.

I put it in those reusable Starbucks cups to make it simple and portable.

I often times will drink these for lunch before eating anything else.  Then gauge how hungry I still am.  It's a super easy way to get in some fruits and veggies in the middle of the day without a salad and the protein is great for muscle recovery.
