Hi, all!

 

I've recently gotten into the habit of drinking a smoothie every day. Here are two of my favorites that I've created, they are 100% vegan:

 

Papaya Green Smoothie

  • 1/4 papaya, seeds scooped out
  • 1 handful of kale
  • 1 handful of red chard
  • 4 strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1.5-2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

 

Blend together and enjoy! I have an old blender so I add in the ingredients in batches and blend so I don't overwork the poor thing, haha. Makes 2 servings so you can share with a friend or save for later.

 

Yummy!! And so good for you! Has healthy fats, omega-3's, calcium, B12 (if you buy the right coconut milk) and every color of the rainbow except blue/purple, haha.

 

Post-Workout Power Milkshake

 

  • Some ice cubes (Maybe 4-5)
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter (almond butter could work as well but I haven't tried it yet)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 banana

 

Again, blend! I always blend the ice cubes alone first, then add in the rest, but again I have an old blender, haha. This smoothie is always a great pick-me-up for me after I'm feeling exhausted from a hard workout.

 

Enjoy!

Mmm! Those both sound delicious!

The second one sounds positively decadent, I love it when healthy things taste like desserts. drool.gif

They sound great - I'm going to give the Papaya Green Smoothie a try.
Thanks.

Sounds great. I was just thinking about making a smoothie.

But what is the purpose of the coconut oil?
