Green Machine Smoothie
Makes 1 Serving

Ingredients:
Please use organic!

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or nut milk of your choice. Here's my recipe for homemade almond milk.)
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. powdered matcha green tea
  • 1/4 avocado (orig. recipe called for 1/2 avocado)
  • 2 Tbls. hemp heart seeds
  • 1 lime (the squeezed juice)
  • 2 oz of spinach, which is about two handfuls (I keep a large bag of spinach in my freezer so I always have some on hand for smoothies or cooking)

Optional:

Blend with 1 Tbls of cacao nibs (I've added this step as a regular ingredient to this smoothie!)

There's still something missing for me in the taste... it could go a little more sweet with a tsp. of cinnamon or slip on over to the savory side with a pinch of salt...

Top with cacoa nibs and bee pollen as shown in my photo

Directions

  • Blend all ingredients, including cocoa nibs if desired, and drink just as it is, or top with bee pollen and/or cocoa nibs!
  • Enjoy!
