Greenleaf Organics Smoothie Recipes

GLO From Within Smoothie

Ingredients | Serves 2
2 cups spinach leaves
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
Thumb size knob of fresh ginger root
1 lime, peeled
1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
1 banana
A pinch of himalayan salt 500ml pure spring water
1 teaspoon flax oil 1 capsule of the following, broken open into a blender:
Triphala for digestive health
Curcumin for anti-inflammatory and joint health
Shatavari for hormonal health
Ashwagandha for adrenal health
Tulsi-holy basil for beauty and stress
Dairy free probiotic, I like Inner Health Plus

With a toss and a twirl, a giggle and squeal, throw all the ingredients into the blender, starting with the powders from the capsule first. Blend until smooth as silk. Hocus pocus, alakazam...and boooooom! Like magic you are ready to make some amazing happen. X


Junior Superhero Smoothie

Ingredients | Serves 2
1 cup mixed frozen berries
½ banana
2 teaspoons plant protein powder - I love the Ceres Organics brown rice protein powder A small handful of sprouts such as broccoli or alfalfa
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, amazing for added B vitamins
250mls almond or other plant milk
A few drops of liquid stevia to sweeten more if needed

Place the nutritional yeast and protein powder into the blender first, followed by the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Encourage your kids to drink slowly. A cute straw can help here so they don’t gulp it down. Tell them all about how it will make them big and strong with superhero powers…kids love a good story. And this one is true!
