Good morning readers! I’m really attempting to make my smoothie pictures look less generic. Today was a fun photo adventure! I really do enjoy photography so now I’m not only having fun creating interesting flavors, but also taking pictures to share with you!
I’m sharing another smoothie recipe with you today, and like I’ve said there are SO many ways to have your morning smoothie. The limits of your imagination truly is the only thing in your way from developing new flavors. This morning I used a green tea and hemp milk base. It is not a very thick smoothie and you can easily drink two servings of this at one time. This will make 2 servings and tastes more like a tall glass of Orange juice then anything else.
You-Won’t-Believe-its-Green Green Tea Smoothie
*All ingredients are Organic
- 1 cup brewed green tea (I drink loose leaf green tea)
- 1 cup hemp milk
- 1 carrot
- 1 peach (I used 5 frozen peach slices)
- 1/2 cup fresh pineapple
- 4 large kale leaves
- 1 bunch of broccoli, about 1/3 cup if you chopped it up
- 1 inch grated ginger
- 1 Orange
Put it all in a high speed blender for a bout 1 minute. If you don’t want it to be hot from the green tea just add some ice cubes or make the tea ahead of time and let it cool off. Enjoy!
Green tea is full of antioxidants, plus it has a bit of caffeine if you need that in the morning. Pineapple is not good for people with diabetes as it is high on the glycemic index, however if that’s not a problem for you then there are many health benefits to this sweet fruit. The combination of ginger and pineapple is a powerful digestion aid, not to mention this smoothie is packed with vitamin C, making it an awesome immune booster. The list of nutrients and minerals go on and on, but you won’t really be thinking about that when all you can do is think how good it is!
