This green smoothie is a complete meal. Best served in the morning for a great boost in health and energy.
1 cup flax milk (or other plant milk)
1 cup frozen mango chunks
2 cups loosely packed spinach leaves
1/2 large frozen banana
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon spirulina powder
generous pinch of turmeric
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon almond butter/sunflower seed butter
3-5 tablespoons orange juice
pinch of black pepper (optional)
Add all of the ingredients to your high speed blender starting with the milk and blend until smooth. I like to add the orange juice at the end as it's blending to help it along if the frozen fruit gets stuck, but just add 1 tablespoon at a time until you achieve the desired smoothie consistency. If it's too thin, add a few more chunks of frozen mango.
