I admit that I prefer the "sweet" smoothies, but being aware of the importance of getting my greens (like a good girl) I usually have a smoothie consisting of: water, spinach or romaine, frozen wild blueberries, goji berries, msm, bee pollen, cacao beans, and sometimes maca and ginger. No one else I know will drink this because they think its disgusting, but I find it to have quite a neutral and pleasant flavour as long as I add enough water. I won't bother posting a pic either, because doesnt look very pretty!
Water of 1 young coconut
Pulp of ½ the coconut (my pulp was firm)
Few large strawberries
1 cup diced papaya
Sprinkle of bee pollen on top (optional)
Next up is Ginger's Best Iced Coffee Ever, and while I've never in my life been a coffee drinker, I love love love this drink!!!! It is a divine creation! I make it without the yacon and fo-ti, and it still turns out amazingly!
a scoop of cacao powder
add a few capsules of Fo-Ti, minus the capsules!
a scoop of maca
tbsp of lucuma
a squirt of yacon
a squirt of agave
1/4 inch vanilla bean
dash of nutmeg
handful of cashews
cup of ice
cup or so of water
Chocolate sauce for lining the glass and topping the drink:cacao and a capsule of ho shou wu & a dash of sea salt mixed with agave.
One day in the summer when I had heaps of fresh rasberries, I came up with this, Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie.
lots of icewater
The other day I made this Bubble Gum Swirly smoothie and I wish I had written down an actual recipe because it was wonderful.
First, I blended:
young coconut water
young coconut pulp
I then added frozen strawberries to half of that mix, and swirled it into the first part.
This Raspberry Nectarine Smoothie is so simple, yet yummy and frosty during a hot afternoon.
So what wraps up the smoothies for now...with more to come on an ongoing basis! Here are many more fabulous smoothie recipes !
