Turns out that giving up sugar for 30 days has a side effect: smoothie addiction! The blender doesn’t even make it back into the cupboard around here anymore. One of our favorites is this mesmerizing vegan Green Smoothie.
1 cup pineapple juice (look for 100% NOT from concentrate – Trader Joe’s has some in the fridge section. You might also want to use more juice if your smoothie comes out too thick)
1/3 cup coconut milk (the thicker kind that actually tastes like coconut)
1 big handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds or 1 tbsp hemp protein
1 tsp matcha green tea powder
Toss everything in your blender and blend (but warn your 6 month old baby if you have one that the blender will be noisy!)
