Green Smoothie Recipe & A Delicious Giveaway -CLOSED-


Green smoothies are a favourite in this house. When I work mostly from home, they are an everyday habit. When I'm away from home many hours and indulge in junk food, they are the first thing I eat to feel good again.

My smoothies change from time to time according to what I feel I need, or what needs to be eaten to not end up to the dumpster. When I need something light, I use water or juice as liquid part and mostly fruits and veggies. When I am more in need of something that will keep me full I use nutmilks and add nut butters, coconut oil, seeds and vegan protein.

Smoothies are a good way to make sure my kid takes all the nutrients he needs. If one day, he hasn't eaten very well, I make him a smoothie. I add coconut oil, when he hasn't eaten enough fats. Flaxseed, chia or hemp seeds for his omegas. Protein powder, nut seeds and nut milks for extra protein and minerals.

Today, I'm gonna share with you an awesome recipe for a green smoothie. The Vanilla Almondila protein powder really does make the difference, although the smoothie tastes very good even without it.


Ingredients:
- One (very) ripe banana
- Juice of three oranges
- A few pieces of pineapple
- Goji berries
- A teaspoon of chlorella
- A tablespoon (or scoop) of Vanilla Almondila protein powder
- A handfull of spinach (not pictured)
- A probiotic capsule (not pictured either)


Directions:
Simply put everything in you blender. Remember that you forgot to add and photograph the spinach and the probiotics. Ask from the screaming little kid to be patient and add them without taking photos (does this sounds familiar to you?). Put in two glasses and share with your little one. Now, smile!


Cause one lucky reader is going to win a packet of Earth Circle Chlorella and a packet of Vanilla Almondila protein powder for his/her smoothies. How awesome is that? The giveaway is open worldwide! This is my first Rafflecopter giveaway so let me know if something doesn't work! Thanks and good luck!

Oh, and by clicking the links of this post to Iherb (my favourite shop to buy organic products), you automatically get up to $10.00 on your first purchase!

  2. Hi, I just came over from clickclackgorilla. I do my share of green smoothies but one my husband has been loving in the morning is banana/walnuts/cocoa powder/cinnamon/milk blended with coffee ice cubes. It is soooo delicious and tastes like a milkshake!
