Green Galaxy Smoothie

Green Galaxy Smoothie

Green Galaxy Smoothie packed with protein and minerals (spinach, maca powder, hemp milk and MORE!) Vegan & Gluten-free

A few days ago, we had some AH-MEEZING spring weather, it felt like summer! I took advantage by heading over to the Union Square Green Market in NYC to find some produce. I stumbled on some gorgeous finds and this beautiful spinach was part of that! So buying a heaping bag of it was an obvious choice. No doubt, I've been using it in various ways, and since I'll take any chance I can to sneak some greens into my smoothies... this spinach found it's way into my blender contraption. So did: dates, almond butter, frozen banana, hemp milk and MACA powder! 

After one sip, I was hooked. Between all the vitamins and nutrients I was slurping down plus the delicious taste, I was seeing stars. Now, I may have mentioned this in my last adventure using maca powder... but it's described as tasting like butterscotch- I can get on that train of thought. There is something to it. It has essential minerals and alkaloids and gives you ENERGY! So this is a perfect morning smoothie. It's also nicknamed "the food of the Gods" - so I dub this the Green Galaxy Smoothie!

The frozen banana makes a perfect consistency, the almond butter adds a creamy factor and the hemp milk is packed with protein as well as the almond butter. Needless to say, you should feel energetic and satisfied after sipping on this!
