Green Smoothie - raw, vegan and healthy
|Healthy Green Smoothie|
Things don't always go according to plan, and I have not been able to do as much proper cooking on the boat as I had hoped.
But we still had to eat, so we did manage to
make really tasty and healthy smoothies for breakfast, which set us up for the day.
Our favourite was this green smoothie:
1/2 a green melon (use the pips as well!)
1/2 cup organic oats - soaked in water overnight
1 heaped T protein powder
2 heaped T assorted Green Powders
several drops stevia liquid
water as necessary
Basically blend all ingredients till smooth!
Some notes or tips:
The melon pips are full of good nutrients, and add a wonderful creaminess to the smoothie.
Melons are very watery, so start off with blending the melon, then add the other ingredients and only add as much water as you need.
Soaking the oats overnight makes them lovely and soft and easier to blend.
You can use any green powders - eg wheat grass powder or barley grass powder etc etc.
Blend on high for a while to get it really smooth and creamy. On the boat we only have a stick blender, so I had to whizz for quite a while.
This recipe is vegan. You could use honey as a sweetener instead of the stevia, if you only want to be vegetarian.
