Back to the Green….Green Smoothies

Last summer I was so into living a healthier life. I had a green almost every morning, I had raw veggies every day in some form (salad, toppings, veggie wraps etc). When the Fall semester started last year all of the good habits I spent the summer building were gone. I was drinking coffee every morning and less water always eating on the go and never planning meals. I left my green smoothies behind and I’ve missed them.

So I’m getting them back. I’m going to replace breakfast with a green smoothie starting next week on Monday. I miss the energy and how great I felt all of the time. There’s other things I want to share that I’ve been doing for my health…Maca root powder and aloe vera juice. Some natural things I do for beauty and how everything goes. I’ll be updating weekly.

Chocolate -Peanut Butter “frappucino”

Chocolate frappucino
As promised earlier here is the chocolate frappucino recipe. Soo spoons good. I’m trying flaxseed for the first time and I figured why not make a smoothie drink only I added a little too much ice but it worked out.

Chocolate – Peanut Butter “frappucino”

1 cup of vanilla almond milk
Ice (I used to much so the amount is really up to you. Next time I’m using 1 handful.)
2 table spoons of flaxseed (I have the course ground from whole foods)
2 table spoons of honey roasted peanut butter
1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
1/2 a frozen banana
Vanilla extract and cinnamon to taste
It was so yummy even with the extra ice. I let it melt a little and put it back in the blender and it was perfect less like a water ice and more like a drink.
