(Recipe and Smoothie Facts part of the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge by Young and Raw)

  • 1 Cup Frozen Blueberries or Raspberries (I used Blueberries)
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 2 handfuls of Greens (I used Kale and a few leaves of Mint)
  • 1 Scoop Vega ONE Chai (didn’t have any)
  • 1 tbsp. Hemp or Chia Seeds (I used Chia)
  • 1 Cup Water or Coconut Water (I used 3/4 cup Almond Milk & 1/4 cup water)

This smoothie is SOOO good! I gulped it down (perfect pick me up for a morning after dancing the night away) and I wish I’d have more!!! Almond milk and mint worked really well – try it! Made almost 2 glasses.
