It’s Friday once again, and after an intense weight and cardio session, I had to share my yummy post workout green smoothie with you. Although it’s been forever since I’ve posted a green smoothie, I still have one every single day, sometimes twice a day! You get twice the serving of your daily vegetable requirement than you would from salads, and we all know that it’s not always practical eating multiple salads every single day, even I don’t do that lol.
Green smoothies are a very convenient way to get your vegetables, and they can also be fun and delicious depending on how creative you get with your ingredients. They are a good source of fibre which promote healthy bowel movement and weight loss, and also contain vitamins and healing properties that strengthen your immune system, prevent certain cancers, provide plant based iron and magnesium for energy, healthy blood and strong bones, and a whole host of others! The possibilities are endless. Here is an amazing guide I found on Pinterest which will give you an idea on how to assemble a perfect green smoothie 🙂
Viola! Have a great weekend ❤️
2 cups organic kale leaves
1 cup organic baby spinach leaves
1 organic red gala apple
1 organic banana
1.5 tbsp organic dark chia seeds
1 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior protein powder
1.5 cups organic unsweetened almond milk
Blend all ingredients in a blender and drink up your daily dose of awesomeness 🙂
PS: If you’re curious about the protein powder I use, I have a picture below. I use a raw plant based protein powder and it’s gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and GMO free! No artificial ingredients or preservatives. You can also purchase it at any health food stores or online.
