blueberry hemp smoothie

i love my blue blue blueberries. 

ours have, of course, stopped growing for the winter season and i've already eaten all the extra ones we froze. but yesterday my mom bought a giant bag of frozen organic blueberries! organic is always better (i don't want my food having nasty chemicals on it that the military originally used to kill their opponents in the first world war... no way) but for berries, spinach and apples - organic is EXTRA SUPER awesome because otherwise they are some of the most contaminated foods. check it out here, homies

and hey, lucky me - i've also got organic spinach. be jealous. so i threw all these magical ingredients together in my vita-mix blender and out came a delicious dark purple concoction that i will call a blueberry hemp smoothie from this day forward. it makes the spinach seem like a secret... shhh.

blueberry hemp smoothie with secret sneaky spinach: serves one

1 banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons raw hemp seeds
1-2 cups water/vegan milk
2-3 cups organic spinach
1/8 teaspoon stevia (or a few dates)

blend. sip. smile.

That's crazy, I was just going to make myself a blueberry smoothie for breakfast today! Mine aren't organic unfortunately. Someday (hopefully soon) I'll grow my won organic food :) This looks delish, enjoy!

Looks tasty! I would use the water and not the milk because I go with dairy-free smoothies. Just shared your smoothie on a couple of my pinterest boards. :)

i am 100% dairy-free too, allen! :) that's why i say "vegan milk", it's just another way of saying "non-dairy". my faves are hemp and coconut milk.

thanks for sharing! i deeply appreciate that.

Hey! I have toe shoes too! I think the same ones! Aren't they just amazing!?! I use them for everything- hiking, running, going out, or just walking downtown. =) . They are SUCH a great buy!!

I love your blog! I've been (almost consistently) vegan for a while and I love it! I found your blog last week and can't stop looking at it and making recipes! Thanks so much for sharing your talent! =)

I love your recipes. Truly inspirational.

I am 17 days into a 26 day juice fast (with the odd raw meal when it gets too much) & I'm looking for more juices (getting bored now). I'll be working my way through yours over the next 9 days.

I also want to start adding some healthy smoothies as I transition back to solids but I can't stand banana. What would you suggest as a reasonable alternative? 1/2 avocado? or just chia seeds for thickness? I know I'll need to adjust sweetness to taste but would value your opinion.

@Corazon Latino - yeah 1/2 avocado is good, or coconut meat, or frozen fruit :D
