What do you do when it’s so hot outside that you child declares he’ll only eat a smoothie for lunch? Make sure that smoothie is a nutritious meal in and of itself. To make this smoothie, I combined lots of greens – kale, spinach, and spirulina powder, generous amounts of healthy fats and protein – coconut and cashew butters, frozen bananas to give it some sweetness and to make it nice and cold, as well as some cacao powder to make it all taste yummy (in addition to cacao’s wonderful nutritional benefits)..
Here’s how I made it:
Meal-in-a-Glass Smoothie Recipe
½ pound Greens (I used a mix of kale and spinach)
½ cup Coconut Butter (I use THIS)
½ cup Cashew Butter (I use THIS)
½ cup Cacao Powder (I use THIS)
4 Bananas, frozen in chunks
2 teaspoons Spirulina Powder
Water or Milk to bring to desired consistency
Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
Serve and enjoy.
NOTE: This recipe served three of us for lunch.
