Green Smoothie

My Green Smoothie

I have to be the first to admit that I'm not a huge fan of smoothies. Especially when they have too many ingredients and are overly sweet.

However I like green earthly flavours. Sweet and sugary sensations can send me high as a kite, and as an earthy Taurus I like to have my feet firmly on the ground.

Smoothies however are simple and I like simple. Here is my green smoothie that keeps my energy levels stable but grounded:

  • A handful of spinach leaves
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use Vega One, however feel free to add your favourite protein powder)
  • 1 teaspoon of raw bee pollen (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of hemp hearts (optional)

Add it all together and blend.
