Do you guys remember in January, I shared that I started working on a secret Cookbook project with 42 amazing food bloggers, And at the same time we launched our first Cookbook called the 5-Minute Healthy Snacks where I shared my Gluten Free 5-Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mug Cake recipe with you guys..?
Well, I am super excited to share our latest and newest Cookbook called: The Great Big Book of Green Smoothies!!
So why have we been working on this cookbook… Here’s why:
When it comes to eating, we have so many choices. With millions of ideas online, thousands of different diet options, a Facebook feed full of articles touting “The 56 Most Important Superfoods You Must Eat Now!” well…it can all start to feel pretty overwhelming.
So, we decided to make it easy.
Because, time and time again, the truth is, there is ONE thing you can do to lose weight, feel amazing and live a better life than ever. And that thing is….
Eat Leafy Greens EVERYDAY!
You guys know I love my desserts right? But I also believe in moderation and being a mother of two, it´s super important to me that they grow up healthy (and happy!).
Linked to everything from weight loss to cancer prevention to kicking kidney stones in the rear, greens are one of nature’s most potent health potions.
But, they’re so bland. And inconvenient. And not nearly as delicious as a milkshake, right?
Yeah, we know. So, we decided to do something about it.
Because easiest way to get your daily dose of nourishing, life-giving greens isn’t to force-chew your way through a bunch. It’s to toss them in the blender and whip up a green smoothie.
Armed with this idea, 42 of us food bloggers hit the kitchen. We whipped and whisked, mixed, sipped, tried, tested and tasted. And every one of us conjured the SINGLE BEST GREEN SMOOTHIE of our lives. Then, we married all of those recipes together, turned them into a cookbook full of green smoothie recipes so good, you’ll be counting down the minutes until your next blender full!
Every one of these recipes are designed for busy people that want to eat more plants everyday, without sacrificing great taste. Here’s a quick recipe you can try from our new book, The Great Big Book of Green Smoothies.
GREEN SMOOTHIE FOR BEGINNERS
If you’re new to making green smoothies, this one’s for you! Mild and delicious, a full head of romaine lettuce is hidden inside. With even more nutritional value than kale, romaine packs high levels of folic acid, which has been shown to battle depression and boost reproductive health. Not a bad way to get started with green smoothies, eh?
YIELD: 1 smoothie
PREP TIME: 5 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 5 minutes
1 very ripe frozen banana
1 head romaine lettuce
1 cup almond milk
1/4 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
