During the warm months, I pretty much make a smoothie once per day.
It's my version of fast food.
(You'd think my kids would start throwing large objects at my head when I begin throwing green stuff in, but they seem totally aloof).
Also, our backyard is my happy place. Which is where smoothies get consumed.
I do yoga, drink smoothies, nap in my hammock, have morning coffee by the fire, eat tacos with neighbors, grow veggies and roll around in the grass with my kiddos back here.
I'm working on making back-yards famous again.
Here's my tip with making smoothies: just throw some stuff in.
To this recipe you can add a protein-powder of choice and different fruits, etc if you choose. The beauty of a smoothie is that they are completely versatile. Just make sure they have lots of protein and fat and low-sugar fruits so you don't overload your system with sugar!
+ 1 handful spinach
+ 1 cup frozen mango
+ 3 T hemp seed
+ 1 T coconut oil
+ water to desired consistency
Blend in a high-powered blender and drink!
