Blog #69: Jamaican Delight Green Smoothie (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

smoothie-729923_1920

Sometimes you just need a delicious, nutrient packed smoothie to start your day — heck this can even be a snack or part of your lunch!  Keep it simple, keep it yummy, keep it healthy.

Without further ado, here she is!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 scoop vegan protein powder with greens (or you can put an entire scoop, it’s up to you –>> keep in mind the taste changes with more powder)
  • 1 1/2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup spring water (or alkalized water of some sort for the mineral content)
  • 5-6 ice cubes

Vegan protein powder WITH greens, mango, pineapple and banana! (Note: The ‘@__oh_hale_yeah__’ Instagram tag you see is from my personal IG account — just an FYI 🙂 )

Recipe Substitutes:

  • If you don’t have any vegan protein powder, use chia seeds, hemp hearts, broccoli or nuts/seeds 
  • If you do have vegan protein powder, but it’s without the greens in it, just add kale, broccoli or lettuce to your smoothie.  You only need a little bit (1/2 cup) and those veggies have minimal taste
  • If you don’t have spring water at home or aren’t using an alkaline water stick in your purified drinking water, of course you can use whatever you have.  It’s just that spring water is healthier due to it’s mineral content and high pH balance (usually of 8 or 9)

Method:

Add all ingredients into your blender (or your Vitamix blender — Get one here! –>> Vitamix 7500, Black).  Blend for until smooth. 

Serve and enjoy!
