Description

A creamy, no-fruit smoothie that’s high in nutrients and low in sugar, without compromising taste.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice, I used unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp raw almond butter, make sure the only ingredient on the label is almonds
  • 1/41/2 cup frozen sweet potato, organic when possible
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed frozen vegetables, organic when possible – I typically use some (or all) of the following: cauliflower, zucchini, broccoli, summer squash
  • Big handful of organic greens, kale, spinach, and arugula are all good options
  • 1 serving vanilla vegan protein powder
  • optional, but recommended: maca powder chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Unless you have loads of time on your hands and want to steam fresh veggies and freeze them, I suggest you buy organic frozen vegetables from the grocery store.
  • Feel free to experiment and use any variation of the veggies listed above. The only things I wouldn’t recommend changing are the 1/4 cup sweet potato (for a touch of sweet & creamy), the vanilla protein powder (for protein & flavor), and some type of healthy fat (for satiety).
