a green smoothie that BOTH the kids love
We've been doing green smoothies again since we got back from our trip. My kids are begging for these which is SOOOO wonderful. I'm including the best one yet. I make it and they suck it down, smacking their lips and saying YUM the whole time. a green smoothie that both kids like! by Linda Wooliever Now you have to do a bit of pre-planning here. You have to make the hazelnut ice cream and have it ready to make this smoothie. Thankfully making raw ice creams are SUPER easy and they make a big quantity so you'll have this for lots of good eatin' times. I wanted to make a green smoothie that was creamy and smooth so that the kids would feel as if they were having a milk shake instead of a healthy drink. TA-DAAA! Here it is! • 4 small red bananas • 1 clementine (use a 1/2 cup of berries if you don't have a clementine) • 1 heaping TBSP vitamineral green • 1 head red leaf lettuce, washed • 1/2 cup hazelnut ice cream (raw version) • 1 scoop Sun Warrior natural protein powder • 1 drizzle agave (optional) • lots and lots of water blend and serve - this makes a full pitcher so a family of 4-6 can have this and feel very satisfied from it. ++++++++++++++++++ hazelnut ice cream recipe: (makes 1 quart) • 1 1/2 cup hazelnuts • 4 cups filtered water • 1/2 cup packed pitted dates • 2 Tbsp non-GMO lecithin • good pinch Celtic sea salt • 1 tsp vanilla extract Put the hazelnuts and 4 cups of water in the pitcher of the blender. Blend for 30-60 seconds. Strain milk through one of our handy-dandy nut milk bags. Put milk back in the blender along with the dates, lecithin, vanilla and salt to the blender. Blend well, pour into a glass or plastic container and freeze in your freezer. Now isn't that easy?
