Hemp Chia Seed Green Smoothie

I could say this is my favorite smoothie, but every smoothie is my favorite smoothie! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I LOVE adding hemp seed, chia seed, maca powder, raw cocoa powder, goji berries, camu camu powder, super greens powder. The list goes on and on. Have you ever seen our multiple cupboards overfilled with goodies? It makes for hard decisions in the morning!

This week my husband is out of town so I had to keep it rather simple and incredibly dense nutritionally.

Today I decided:

Half a cup frozen peaches

Half a cup frozen pineapple

1/4 of an avocado

2 stems worth of kale (stems removed, I juice those babies!)

2 handfuls of fresh power greens mix (ours is baby kale, Swiss chard and spinach)

3 tablespoons of chia seeds

3 tablespoons of hemp seeds (hello complete protein)

Handful of organic dried goji berries (another great protein choice)

Ice

Water
*i do not specificy the amount of water you need because it depends. Depends on your preference, do you like thick or thin? Add more water for a thinner texture. I like thicker textures. Also, depends on the blender you have. We have the nutribullet. The nutribullet makes it easy and gives you a line to fill with liquid towards the top! Also, you don’t have to use water, any liquid of your choice so long as it does not cause you inflammation. Dairy has been linked to cause inflammation so I try to stay away from it, but organic nut & coconut milk or coconut water work great too! Experimenting is key. Find what you like so you KEEP GOING

The main goal for smoothies for myself is to incorporate fruits and good fats. This is opposite of most people, most people I know enjoy smoothies to hide vegetables. I enjoy smoothies to hide fruit and boost my good fats intake as I am still nursing a 1 year old so I have two brains to feed! I have noticed since starting smoothies {EVERY DAY!} my need for sweets has drastically declined. Coincidence? I think not!
I’ll definitely share some more recipes; especially this week. Thank you for all the requests!
Ps. No photo to share today. πŸ˜€drank that too quick! 😁
