Courage to be Strong: Smoothies

Leave a comment

Here are some smoothie recipes from Laura L. (our resident smoothie expert) to help us “Be Strong” in October!


The following two recipes came from a Detox program that Laura did in the Spring through Crave Moxie: http://bethany-utke.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/


1 1/2 cups dairy free milk (almond, coconut, etc.)

1 avocado, peeled & pitted

1 cup spinach

1 tbsp raw cacao

1 scoop hemp protein powder

Dates or honey to sweeten to taste – start with 3 dates and go from there.



1 1/2 cups almond milk (or coconut, or regular if you tolerate it well)

1 frozen banana

2-3 Medjool dates, soaked & pitted (or just throw them in without soaking)

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp raw honey


Laura also shared this link on making your own almond milk:



She uses dates for an all-natural sweetener, and says you can buy a nut milk bag for straining on Amazon. It tastes totally different than store-bought — much creamier and you can sweeten as much or as little as you want!

Thanks, Laura, and happy sipping everyone!
