Raw: Mean Green Smoothie

meangreansmoothie

This delicious smoothie is as yummy as it is good for you! The Maca powder, Chia and Hemp seeds will give you stamina and energy to last throughout the day and coconut water is the ultimate hydration. Baby spinach is rich in many micro-nutrients including Vitamin K, A, C, and folate; also the minerals iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. I know quite a few people afraid of green drinks, but this one definitely doesn’t taste like lawn clippings or anything of the sort! Just embrace the chlorophyll and your body will thank you! With any smoothie, feel free to make alterations based on your own personal tastes. This can be made in any blender or food processor, but as I’ve said before — having a Vita-Mix or Blendtec is a priceless piece of equipment when it comes to raw foods & smoothies!

  • 1 cup young coconut water (I like to use fresh Thai coconuts, but feel free to use whatever you can find)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2-3 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 1-2 tsp. of each of the following: Maca powder, Chia seeds, Hemp seeds

Blend all the ingredients until smooth and enjoy! Serves 2.
