Today I’m sharing a recipe that from a new book, 40 Days of Green Smoothies, Kickstart your mornings with this 40 day program designed to develop your green smoothie habit! This book is from Becky Striepe of Glue and Glitter blog. Becky has created a book of delicious smoothies while hiding in lots of greens and veggies in them. It’s a 40 day program designed to kick up your greens into your eating habits. I love veggies and especially green ones and have no problems eating them. I’m actually not a smoothie person and don’t really drink them, but I know a large amount of people rely on them. This book is great for those who love smoothies and Becky also includes shopping lists and menus in the book to help you out.
This Banana Berry Fresh Smoothie my daughter absolutely loved. It has bananas, raspberries, parsley and chia seeds. She had no clue there was greens in there. I may have thrown a couple of extra raspberries in there, too 😉
I even doubled the recipe so it would fill a full glass and she drank the whole thing. She loves veggies just like I do, so I don’t need to sneak them in, however, she loves drinking a cold sweet smoothie too. I know she wouldn’t like the taste of parsley though, but the raspberries and banana covered it all up. I know a lot of people count on smoothies for breakfast or a pick-me-up or to refuel after a workout, so this book is great for people who love smoothies.
All the recipes are whole foods, nothing fake or artificial. Just great plant food!
Other yummy smoothies from the book are:
Cherry Tangerine Smoothie
Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie
