Raw Green Smoothie

This is my ultimate favorite pre-workout protein packed smoothie!  I thought I would share the recipe for everyone to enjoy!

For the base, I really love to eat my breakfast with a spoon and like it a bit thicker.   However, you can make it in more of a smoothie form and drink it.  Whichever consistency you choose, its simply delectible.  Below are the ingredients.

Raw Green Protein Smoothie

Smoothie Base:

1 Frozen Banana (I peel, cut and put these into freezer bags so I can quickly access them during the week)

2  Handfulls of fresh organic spinach leaves

1 tbsp maca powder

1 scoop of RAW protein powder or your favorite protein powder.

1/2 – 1 Cup of Unsweetend or vanilla almond milk (depending on how thick you want the consistency)

1-2 Ice cubes to add thickness to the consisency

Topping: Fresh Berries + my RAW Chocolate Granola mix

Angie’s RAW Chocolate Granola

In a saucepan mix the following to a liquid state:

2 tbsp organic coconut oil

2 tbsp organic natural peanut butter

1 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tbsp organic brown rice syrup

Add in the dry ingredients:

2 tbsp shelled hemp seeds

1 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp raw unsweetened shredded coconut

2 tbsp RAW protein powder or Nutrilite All Plant Protein powder

3/4 cup organic oats

*Add a sweetener of your choice.  You can use Stevia or I prefer Raw Agave syrup and I use about 1-2 tbsp depending on how sweet you like it.

Mix it all together and put in a pan or tupperware and freeze about an hour.  You can crumble pieces off as needed to add to your shakes or just break off and eat alone.  Either way, its delicious and packed with superfoods and protein.

The end result is simply delectable as a pre-workout/post workout or just a snack!  I hope you all enjoy!
