Creature From The Black Lagoon Green Smoothie Recipe

24 Apr


I do love green smoothies, even though I heard Rip Esselstyn say at a recent talk I went to that they are not suggested for Engine 2. Many of the low-fat, vegan diet gurus are now saying  juicing and green smoothies cause an insulin surge even if they have a high greens content. Not sure how I feel about this. Boy would I love to conduct an experiment on myself! I’m still drinking them some days—mostly it’s a convenience thing and some days I feel like  I just need more greens and I cannot face the idea of eating even one more salad. I would take a picture, but this smoothie literally looks like black sludge. All I could think of was The Creature From The Black Lagoon, hence the name. Very energizing and filling!

Creature From The Black Lagoon Smoothie

1 cup almond milk or alternate milk; I used the new Rice Dream almond/hazelnut/cashew blend

1/4 cold water

3 handfuls spinach

1 cup strawberries

1 tablespoon carob mint spirulina

1 tablespoon wonderslim cocoa powder

1 scoop Warrior Blend protein or any plant-based protein (Plant Fusion is good, too)

2 packets truvia or alternate sweetener

Put spinach in blender with water and almond milk, blend until completely smooth. Add the powders one at a time while running the blender and add fruit last. Blend until smooth and then drink and enjoy!
