Green smoothies are a staple around our home during the summer. Although, lately with the bounteous berries the Pacific Northwest offers, our smoothies are more of a purple color. My boys love them! This year I've been adding broccoli and cauliflower greens along with kale and spinach for added goodness.
Here's a versatile recipe that offers a lot of room for your own adaptations. It's raw, vegan (we use honey), and so very healthy!
1/2 C raw almonds
1/2 C raw oats
2 T raw coconut
2 T flax meal
2 T raw sunflower seeds
-----Pulse until smooth, then add,
1 handful greens
1 handful frozen berries
Water or fresh orange juice to your preferred consistency
Raw honey to your liking
-----Blend all until smooth. Enjoy!
