Green Smoothie #19

Published March 3, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So here’s a picture of my 19th green smoothie at work today. (I’m a radiation therapist in case you’re wondering what all those sci-fi looking keyboards are for!) This is my little setup these days. I use one of my humongous Beatles Love cups to tote my approximately 32 ounces of greens & fruit to work every day and drink it through my purple metal slurpee straw. (I originally bought it just because it was purple, and hardly used it, but it’s turned out to be absolutely perfect for these!) Today I decided to try a scoop of raw cacao powder in the mix.

Green Smoothie #19

*Fresh Kale, about 3 cups
a handful of fresh parsley
2 1/2 cups of filtered water
1 apple, quartered
2 bananas
* 3/4 c. frozen mixed greens (collards, kale, mustard greens)
*1/2 c. frozen mixed berries
*1/2 c. frozen mango
*1/2 c. almond milk
1/4 cup raw cacao
raw agave
a handful of ice

* measurements are approximations

The berries took it from a very vibrant green to a brownish color, which is what gave me the inspiration to try the raw cacao. I also had 2 bananas in there so I thought it’d be a nice complement. This came out extra thick and made a ton! The Vitamix was totally full. I had to drink some before I could pour it all into these giant cups! : )
