As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been writing more and more about healthy eating and healthy living in general. Now that I eat a Vegan diet (no animal foods), I discover and create great new recipes all the time. I’ll be sharing the best ones with you here. You don’t have to be Vegan to eat them, but, shhhh, here’s a little secret, if you do eat them, they will make you really healthy and make you less likely to crave foods that are bad for you. So don’t tell that part of yourself that thinks being a vegetarian is something you could never do. Just eat it an enjoy!
So here’s my favorite smoothie recipe:
Green Watermelon Smoothie
Makes enough smoothie for 2-4 people. Drink half for your breakfast and freeze the other half for a super healthy afternoon snack. Totally better than ice cream! You can cut this recipe in half if you’re just making it for yourself. This is the perfect breakfast!
- 4 ripe bananas
- 2-3 cups of green leafy veg (spinach, kale, mache, collards, field greens)
- 1 cup mixed berries (frozen is fine: blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries)
- 1/2-3/4 cup watermelon
- 1 Tbsp Flax seed oil
- 1 cup water/icecubes
- 1 scoop Green Vibrance
- 1 Tbsp Spirulina
In a blender: Blend on high all the fruit and water/ice cubes first. Then add the Green Vibrance and the Spirulina and blend on high. Last, add the flax oil and blend also on high. Pour and enjoy right away to benefit from all the healthy live plant enzymes.
This has a wonderful smooth taste. The bananas add just the right amount of sweetness. The greens merely add a flavor that I can only describe as “fresh.” The flax oil you don’t even taste, but it is extremely healthy for you and it fosters the satisfied feeling. Lastly the watermelon contributes a summery tropical dimension. Oooo. I just love this smoothie and you will too!
Please don’t worry about too much fructose from all the fruits. This will not make your blood sugar spike. All the fiber in this drink will help the fructose enter your bloodstream slowly. Don’t even think about calories. This perfect breakfast will help you lose weight if you combine it with a vegan diet.
And if you become serious about eating healthier, I can’t recommend anything more highly than a VitaMix blender. It’s a little pricey, but they last a lifetime and they make eating healthy a breeze. I love mine!
