Banana Date Green Smoothie

I freaking love sweet fruity smoothies, especially when I can sneak in greens and have it still taste like insanely yummy fruit candy.

What you will need:

2 ripe bananas (preferably frozen first!)

Handful of small pitted dates or 4 large dates

1 cup of spinach

1 coconut

I scoop of green powder

1 blender (preferably a high powered one like a vitamix or a blend tech to grind up the dates, otherwise you’ll be left with a ton of date mush at the bottom of your blender)

Smoothie Making Instructions (ummm… these are really really obvious and actually in the wrong order so feel free to think for yourself and skip!)

1.  Chop open the coconut!  Good luck! Don’t chop off your finger, remember blood isn’t vegan!  I am actually terrible at this as you can see from the giant mess I made…

1.5.  If you don’t want to do this you can always just buy some coconut water or use almond milk instead.

2.  When you’ve opened the coconut, filter out any chopping debris and pour the water into the blender after adding the bananas, dates, spinach, and green powder.

3.  If you don’t have a high powered blender then I recommend soaking the dates in hot water until they are very soft so they will blend easier first.

4.  If you are using fresh bananas instead of frozen you may want to add some ice too!

5.  Some other fun things to add to the smoothie are peanut or almond butter, probiotics, protein powder (if you’re into that kind of thing), soaked goji berries, or cocoa powder!

Enjoy!!

Vegan Fact of the Day – What a Load of Sh**


In the US, humans produce a staggering 12,000 pounds of excrement per second! But the livestock that’s raised produces over 20 times that amount, at 250,000 pounds per second! What a waste!

Vegan Fact of the Day – Cows Eat Fish?

According to Paul Watson of the Sea Shepard more than half of the fish taken from the ocean are ground up and fed to livestock, making cows one of the largest ocean predators. 



So creepy… what are humans thinking???

You can read the Sea Shepard link below for more detailed information.

Simple Green Juice

I love juicing!  I generally try to make a fresh green juice at least every other day.  This recipe is pretty simple and light, I often prefer light crisp tasting juices.

Ingredients:

8 Granny Smith apples

1 head of parsley

4 carrots

1 piece or turmeric

Then  I generally double the size of my juice by adding water to make it nice and light.  

That’s it!  Simple, light, and delicious!  Enjoy!

(Sometimes juicing takes too long and I eat the ingredients before they make it to the juicer…!)
