Fibre (aka any leafy green) – I’ve been known to add: lettuce, spinach, kale, celery, watercress, parsley…although not green, also very tasty & beautiful in a smoothie are: carrots, red cabbage, beets, etc.
Healthy fat – coconut, avocado, nut butter…
Sweetness – frozen berries, cherries, pears, peaches, etc.
Pour *liquid 1/3 height of food stuff (i.e. non-dairy milk, water, fresh juice)
Top with optional spices & superfoods.
My favourite combination: (2 servings)
2 handfuls of greens: kale, spinach, sprouts, etc.
1 cup frozen, wild blueberries
1/2 cup full-fat coconut cream, or avocado
4 - 6 Tbsp hemp hearts
2 - 3 Tbsp raw honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
