Drink your greens

Back at the beginning of May I set some intentions, one of them being to use the vitamix to help me get an extra dose of greens and other goodness. Mission accomplished, I have a great recipe to share with you.

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt or cottage cheese 
1 serving of brown rice protein or your favorite protein powder 
Handful of spinach 
Handful of kale leaves 
1/2 cup of almond or hemp milk (you may need to add more) 
1/2 avocado
Stevia, local honey, or agave to taste

Place ingredients in your blender and let it do it's work.  It will be green, don't let that scare you.  Pour into a glass and enjoy!

So, that is just the base.  Feel free to experiment and have fun with it.  Here are some ideas:

Add coconut oil, almond butter, hemp oil, flax seed oil for your healthy fats.

Add fruit to make it a bit sweeter. (Think frozen bananas and strawberries)

Add chia seeds or ground flax

Pour into a mason jar, sip with a straw and most importantly enjoy the energy, glow and goodness that you are giving your body!
