I am doing an improvised raw food diet to help detox. I am eating at least 51% raw and 100% vegan. I am working on a budget of $10.00 to $15.00 per day, and about an hour a day prep time. I wanted to share a simple green smoothie recipe that kids (and adults) will love. It’s affordable and quick and easy. I adapted it from multiple other versions where I didn’t have the ingredients they listed. Feel free to do the same. When it comes to green drinks, anything goes.
I named it Chocolate Green-Nut Butter Cup.
- 1.5 cups (12 oz) of your favourite nut milk.*
- 1 tightly packed cup of kale
- 2 tablespoons of your favourite raw nut butter.*
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 serving of Chocolate Green SuperFood by Amazing Grass or you can substitute cacao nibs. I am not sure of the measurements for cacao nibs, though.
*If you have more time and money to invest, make your own nut milk and your own nut butter.
Rinse the kale thoroughly. Put all ingredients in a high quality blender. Put the liquids first, then the softer ingredients, and then the harder ingredients. I blend it for about 30 seconds. And voila – you have a yummy chocolate nut shake which completely masks the taste of kale.
Sorry I didn’t do proper measurements. I just wanted to share this with you and you can come up with your own ideas from there. Let me know what you end up doing.
