This may come to a surprise to some of you as I don’t believe I have ever made anything other than a green smoothie. Don’t be alarmed... I still love and cherish and will always rate the green smoothie number one in my books but I have been trying to branch out and try new things and I definitely hit the purple jackpot with this here beauty. Just kidding of course.. I’ve made all different kinds of smoothies. But this berry smoothie from yesterday was the bomb and felt the need to share it with you all💜
The reason all my smoothies turn green is simple. I add spinach or some sort of leafy green to them all. I have tried to rock a purple or pink smoothie but the moment that green goes in, I end up with a turd brown colour and no one likes that colour now do they.. tell me I’m not alone here. Raise your hand if that’s happened to you🤚🏼🤣 Don’t get me wrong, it tastes friggin great but doesn’t quite strike the same cord as, well, let’s say this beauty.
INGREDIENTS (serves 2)
1/2c chopped zucchini
1/2c chopped cucumber
3/4c fresh blueberries (more for topping)
chunk fresh ginger
1tsp maca powder @ecoideas
2tbsp @organika blue mylk latte powder
1 frozen banana (chopped into chunks)
1c filtered water
Add water to blender first and then all other ingredients. Save the frozen banana and ice for last. BLEND and top as you wish. I got fancy with a 1/2tsp coconut oil and 1tbsp of tahini. Microwave tahini for 20 sec and mix. The oil thins out the tahini making easier to drizzle.
🙌🏼Makes things A BEAUTIFUL shade of BLUE💙 I add to oats, chia pudding and even pancakes. So fun😁
