I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Monk Fruit In The Raw. I received product samples to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
In July, I started drinking green smoothies as part of a detox cleanse. Since then I haven’t purchased my favorite diet soda or the chocolate low calorie snacks I was previously hooked on. These smoothies honestly have changed the way I’ve been eating and drinking for years. I am beyond pleased and I feel so much better.
Have you tried a Green Smoothie?
I have been making a simple green smoothie recipe for weeks now. When I first started I mixed it up quite a bit. Since I don’t have a lot of extra space in my fridge and freezer I’ve kept it simple. I have been drinking usually one green smoothie for breakfast but on days where I splurge at lunch, I drink a green smoothie for dinner too. Snacks now consist of either popcorn or baked snap peas.
Simple Green Smoothie Recipe
- 2 heaping handfuls of greens
- 1 /2 cups water
- 2 handfuls of grapes
- 1 banana
- 1 cup frozen mangoes (or peaches)
- 1 cup frozen berries (I vary this from time to time)
- soy protein powder
- 2-3 packets of Monk Fruit In The Raw
I mix my water and greens first, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend. This recipe usually makes 3 16oz green smoothies. I drink one and save the other two in the fridge. They don’t last too long in the fridge since they are not pasteurized so I drink them within 48 hours.
I like to use a bit of Monk Fruit In The Raw as a sweetener in my green smoothie. It makes it taste much better. Before I used Monk Fruit In The Raw I wasn’t using any sweetener because the recommended ones online seemed to have a terrible flavor in my opinion. But Monk Fruit In The Raw has a great sweet flavor and no terrible aftertaste.
