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!
