Green smoothies really have become so mainstream and a staple for many people, myself included. They are really the best way to get fruits and veggies in your system — today on Earth Day and every day! I love how I feel after I have a green smoothie and find myself craving them when I can’t make one or find a shop that does. This recipe is easily tweak-able to your liking but I’ll give you the basics of how I make sure my smoothie is always tasty, creamy and just cold enough to be easily digested by my body.
These are my smoothie mainstays: fresh ginger, chia seeds, raw walnuts and cinnamon. I love the taste of ginger and cinnamon but they’re also both super good for you and have anti-inflammatory properties, which is great. Chia seeds and walnuts are both high in omega-3 fatty acids and have good protein. I don’t particularly like walnuts so I sneak them into my smoothie because they’re really one of the best nuts for you!
