green hornet smoothie.

I have been relying on smoothies more than ever this summer, so that would explain why there are so many smoothie recipes on here lately. I’m also trying to make more with coconut water as a base instead of almond milk because before or after a work out I feel so refreshed. Also I’m trying to try to find more that use a little more vegetables, instead of so much fruit.

Earlier this summer we were in Madison, Wisconsin and stopped at Collectivo Coffee during their epic farmers market. They had one dairy free smoothie, the green hornet, so I ordered it and it was delicious. So delicious that Milo took it over, and I had to go order another one.  I wrote down what listed in it and have been making it myself. Its the perfect summer smoothie. So refreshing!

1 cup coconut water
3-4 pinapple chunks
small chunk of cucumber (about 1/4 of a cucumber or so)
1/2 green apple
1-2 stalks celery
Handful of spinach
2-3 Kale leaves
ice
optional: hemp seeds, flax seeds, maca powder

Blend and enjoy.
