To The Max Green Smoothie

Why haven’t I used wheat grass and spirulina before with the great properties these two ingredients have to offer? I just don’t know but better late than never!!

The texture of the smoothie was really ideal with the avocados and frozen bananas, which by the way it was the first time I used avocados for smoothies, and I really liked it. Also, if you like, you can add some fresh mint to give the smoothie a more refreshing taste…..just a thought 🙂

This smoothie is definitely a keeper 🙂 The nutritional value on this smoothie is just out of this world so I hope you try it. If you are interested in drinking your nutrition here are other smoothies you may like as well:

This smoothie was very creamy and thick. If you like it more liquid/juice like consistency stay tuned for other variations I will be making with this 🙂 By the way I didn’t use chia seeds this time around, I forgot 🙂

These could also be frozen really well and eaten as a treat. The kids would love them… This smoothie is packed with great properties. The honey and the ginger of set the wheat grass flavor which it simply tastes like grass, not my kind of flavor 🙂

Next time I use wheat powder I think I will also add parsley that has great antioxidant properties, and mint and ginger as well as lemon juice to mask the wheat grass flavor. It will be a more juice texture type of smoothie so stay tuned!!

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons wheat grass powder
1/2 tablespoon spirulina powder
2 avocados
3 cups fresh spinach
2 frozen bananas
4 cups almond milk, more if you like, any other type of milk will also work
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped, I used ginger powder since I did not have any fresh on hand
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup flax seed meal, optional, I use it sometimes

Directions:

Place all of the ingredients in your food processor and pulse until smooth. Serve immediately!
