You don’t have to get drunk to have fun today! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve created a Green Smoothie that will do quite the opposite; it’s not only good for you, it’s green and super tasty too! We’ve named it our Happy St. Patrick’s Day Green Smoothie – don’t worry, you can drink it any other day of the year too 🙂
In a blender, combine:
2 tablespoons Spirulina
2 cups Power Greens
1 cup Organic Daybreak Blend (frozen fruit)
6 cups unsweetened Almond Milk
optional; 1-2 tablespoons Raw Honey, to taste
optional; 1-2 teaspoons Green Tea Matcha (for an energy boost)
Blend on high for 1 minute and serve right away in wine glasses.
Enjoy! Yields 6-8 servings
Optionally, add a couple of ice cubes before or after blending. We’ve found that we like both options to make it colder or the no ice option with cold almond milk, either way it’s awesomely refreshing and boosts focus!
Ready for the summer? Today, we got surprised by a hot sunny day in Santee, CA. Not that it’s strange for us to have beautiful sunny weather here in San Diego, but it’s been cold and rainy the last few weeks. So was today just a fluke or what marks the first day of our summer?
What you don’t want on a day like this though is to get dehydrated! Drinking plenty of water is definitely a good thing, especially if you’re a coffee drinker. But not everyone likes just “plain” water so here’s our recipe for a tasty summer drink that will definitely keep you hydrated.
In 1 gallon of filtered water add:
1 medium orange, cut in 1/4 inch slices
1/2 cucumber, cut in 1/4 inch slices
10 mint leaves (fresh is better but dried will do too
Add ice if you want it cold
Gently mix it all up and enjoy!
Cucumbers help your body to retain water. Remember how we mentioned coffee drinkers? Caffeine actually does the opposite, it helps your body get rid of water. Cucumbers are also alkaline which means that it helps your body regulate it’s pH, neutralizing the acidity from other foods, especially processed foods, and gives you a better chance of warding off infection.
Citrus in general help cleanse your intestines and even promote fat burning and weight loss. But perhaps what makes it so good in our drink is that it helps reduce stress, refreshing and revitalizing along the way.
There are all sorts of things that mint is good for and along with the orange and cucumber, it’s actually pretty tasty too! Mint also refreshes is known to take headache away, by smelling it or massaging some of the essential oil on your temples. Imagine what it can do to your dehydration headache if you drink it!
Where do we get our ingredients? Our favorite place for these ingredients is Growers Direct. They’re a small, farmers-market-like shop on University Avenue, on the border between San Diego and La Mesa. All their produce is locally and organically grown/sourced and way cheaper than Sprouts or Whole Foods. More information can be found HERE.
Last week I ordered a number of Navitas Naturals products and decided to experiment with a Superfood Smoothie. The following is what I was able to come up with and has become a favorite for us. Here it is in a nutshell:
The reason why I use warm water for this is so that the honey would dissolve better (note that the raw honey should not go over 110 F or else you’ll kill the enzymes that make it so good for you). Well, it’s like drinking a hot chocolate that’s cooled off quite a bit. So, if that’s not your favorite way of drinking a chocolate smoothie, other alternatives that we’ve tried is to simply add a few ice cubes and then blending it again, which makes a tasty cold chocolate drink, or dissolving the honey in the warm water beforehand and then having it cool down in the fridge before making the smoothie.
