Green smoothies

Green Velvet Smoothie

Green velvet smoothie (kale, banana, and avocado)

Kale, banana, an avocado join forces in this creamy, filling smoothie. Hemp seeds are optional, but they’re one of the best, most concentrated sources of Omega 3s—better (and tastier) than flaxseeds. They make a great addition to this creamy smoothie. Look for both hempseeds and hemp milk at most any natural foods market. Adapted from Wild About Greens by Nava Atlas.

Ginger, Pear, and Spinach Shake

Pears on a plate

You can substitute 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice for some of the water, or throw in a handful of cashews for more texture and protein. Try chilling the shake in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before serving if you want a more cooling effect. Contributed by Alexandra Jamieson, from Vegan Cooking for Dummies.* more→
