It’s natural to start want cooling foods in the summer and smoothies never disappoint.
Lately I’ve been making them with simple vegetables like green pepper, celery, carrot, and or cucumber / apple. Then, I amp them up with a teaspoon of Dr. Cowan’s Garden veggie powders* for true vegetable variety and health benefits. It packs a flavor bomb, too.
I also like to add a fat for flavor and nutrient assimilation. In this case I’m getting fat from both the hemp seeds and olive oil. (You can read more about that popular, award winning olive oil on Amazon here.) I’m on an olive oil kick lately – it’s been calling me and it’s great added to smoothies.
The hemp seeds also add a little protein.
Another important ingredient is a pinch of sea salt to bring out all of the flavors and make it extra tasty. Lastly, I add water, not seen here.
Simple, tasty, and such an easy way to get more vegetables into your day with one quick recipe.
*Even though you see my Dr. Cowan’s Garden Kale jar pictured, notice the powder has red in it. That’s because I took my many jars of Dr. Cowan’s Garden powders and dumped them in a giant bowl. I mixed them and then distributed them back into the various jars. So, it says “kale” but it’s really a mix of many of his powders. (Why did I do that? I just felt like it.)
