My Hike Was Smoothie

Week 10 (Nov 21)

https://www.thekitchn.com/17-smoothies-to-make-the-day-after-thanksgiving-237804

Today we’re going back to the basics – use what we have in the freezer (frozen berries). Divide into groups – be independent! Remember the clean up. (Ask for help as needed but try to be independent). 

Week 9. Nov 14th

Smoothie -Taste-test-day: 

Let’s make 2 small smoothie batches with Vegetables in them for taste test – frozen pureed carrots & Broccoli

BROCCOLI:

Ingredients: 

  • Broccoli: For this creamy smoothie, you can use either a cup of raw broccoli florets or cooked broccoli. Frozen broccoli will also work!
  • Mango: I recommend using frozen unsweetened mango chunks to save on prep time. Mango is loaded with Vitamin C! Frozen ingredients make it so that you don’t have to add ice to your broccoli detox smoothie to cool it down.
  • Medium Banana: Bananas are rich in potassium and are an excellent source of nutrients. We used a medium frozen ripe banana for this bright green smoothie with broccoli. Thanks to the fresh fruit, you don’t need to add sugar or coconut sugar (or any sweetener) to this recipe!
  • Milk: We used unsweetened almond milk for this recipe, but you can any kind of milk. If you’re not vegan, you can use low-fat milk or skim milk. For a plant-based option, try unsweetened coconut milk, oat milk, flax milk, etc. If you don’t want to use milk, you can also use coconut water and a splash of lemon juice. I don’t recommend using fruit juices like orange juice or pineapple juice as that would increase the sugar content of this recipe without adding any nutrients.
  • Vanilla Extract: Vanilla extract adds natural sweetness without needing sugar.
  • Yogurt: Greek yogurt is full of calcium and protein. Feel free to use dairy-free yogurt (like unsweetened coconut yogurt) for a vegan option.
