Peanut Butter Smoothie

If you want a smoothie with more than just fruit/water/leafy greens, try this Peanut Butter Smoothie. The peanut butter and hemp seeds are protein sources, which keep you feeling full longer than a fruit smoothie. At over 400 calories, yes, it could be a meal replacement..

I did add spinach into mine, but the greens are totally optional. Taste your smoothie without the greens first and see how you like it.

Peanut Butter Smoothie
- 3 frozen bananas
- 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon agave
- 2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk
-  a few dashes of powdered cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional, if you use plain almond milk. Not necessary if you use
vanilla non-dairy milk)
- 2 cups leafy greens (optional)


For the frozen bananas, there's two options:
1. Peel and slice ripe bananas, then put them in the freezer inside freezer safe plastic baggies.
2. Put ripe bananas in the freezer. Run them under hot water to peel the skins. Break bananas in half. Then put inside your blender.

And if you're having chocolate cravings, add 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Then you've got a "Reese's Cup Smoothie."

Coming soon: Peanut Butter Smoothie's crazy rich cousin: Tahini Smoothie. :-)

Clementine Smoothie

Hi Everyone!

Here's a simple green smoothie for the holidays.
- 4 clementines
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons ginger
- 1 celery stalk
- 2 cups raw collard greens
- 1 teaspoon hemp oil
- water


You can always add more of any fruit or greens, or even use another leafy green. If it's not sweet enough for you, add 1/2 of a peeled lemon and/or 1/2 cup pineapple chunks (the canned pineapple in its juice, not canned pineapple bathed in syrup). To replace hemp oil, use chia seeds, flax seeds, or coconut oil.

Let me know what you think.
