The midway point of Seven Days of Smoothies is today! You didn’t think I would forget about green smoothies did you? They are my favorite! In fact I love them so much, I want to give you an an A-Okay to throw greens into any of the smoothies on this seven day challenge! Kale Me Later is the smoothie of the day, but you’re going to want to do it now not later. 🙂
Lucuma powder, a maple flavored natural sweetener from the Inca fruit which contains iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium, and beta caroteine is an optional add in to your smoothie. Matcha adds green tea flavor to the smoothie as well as a powerhouse of antioxidants like the Catechin EGCg known for it’s cancer protective properties. It is energizing, detoxifying, and helps concentration and focus.
If you want more green goodness, feel free to double this recipe for a larger smoothie!
