I am kicking off 2016 with a fun series of smoothies! The goal is to have a different one each day so that over the course of a week, you get a large variety of nutrition, fiber and phytochemicals (some of which are still being identified) from foods like richly colored fruits, raw cacao, matcha green tea, dates, berries, protein and healthy fat! Each day uses different colors and ingredients. They are all dairy free and nut free. Won’t you join me?
Day one is Razzleberry Rad! So here we go! Seven Days of Smoothies!
Razzleberry Rad Smoothie – Day 1
1/2 Cup Frozen Raspberries
1/3 Cup Frozen Dark Sweet Cherries
1/3 Cup Frozen Strawberries
2 Tablespoons Pom Juice Concentrate
1/4 Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk
1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
2 Tablespoons Sparkling Mineral Water (or plain filtered water)
2 Tablespoons of Grass Fed Gelatin or Your Favorite Protein Powder (add after initial blending and blend just until incorporated to prevent foaming)
Blend all the ingredients together until very smooth. Then add the gelatin or protein powder and blend briefly.
