Gold To Green Smoothie (Raw Vegan Recipe)

by Kristen Suzanne in green mommy blog

I’m glad you are all excited about the Avocado Cucumber Smish-Smash recipe I posted.

Today’s recipe is a wonderful nutritious smoothie that starts out filled with gorgeous golden colors in the blender, but quickly turns to a vibrant green after blending. It’s unique and addicting. My kind of smoothie!

The nutrition is top of the line, too! Spinach (vitamins K, C, A, B2, and E, as well as iron,  manganese, zinc, folate, calcium, protein, fiber, and more). Banana (vitamins B6, C, potassium, manganese, and fiber). Golden Kiwi (loads of vitamin C, as well as vitamin E, fiber, potassium, copper, and more). Hemp foods (complete protein, essential fatty acids, calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorous, magnesium, and more). Turmeric (manganese, iron, vitamin B6, and loads of antioxidants). How can you NOT get excited about all of that delicious nutrition that will make your heart, mind, and soul sing?

Gold To Green Smoothie
Recipe by Kristen Suzanne of KristensRaw.com
Yield approximately 1 quart

1 cup water (more if desired)
1 cup ice
1 banana
2 golden kiwi
2 big handfuls spinach
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
2 heaping tablespoons hemp protein powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric (or more!)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (or more! yum yum!)

Blend it up and enjoy!

I’m frequently asked which blender I like better: Vita-Mix or Blendtec. I love both my Vita-Mix and Blendtec blenders! Although, I tend to use my Blendtec more… it’s easier to clean. For a more detailed review, check out my blog post here.
