Always inspired by the vegan culture, I try to get my proteins as much as I can from the vegetal side. Lately, as I was discovering the phenomenon of “carb cycling”, I discovered the phenomenon of all veggies green smoothies. On those days where you desire to consume less carbs, these light smoothies will fill you up quickly and support you in energy.
Also, if you are like me and hate to have to always get all the ingredients out for one smoothie, this recipe will allow you to continue to drink smoothies and save time and energy.
First, get all the good greens you want from your fridge (about the equivalent of a medium salad bowl or about 3-4 cups of greens).
Steam until they soften. Cooking them under steam will allow them to keep their pure healthy elements.
In a mixer, pour in the veggies and slowly incorporate about 1/2 to 1 cup of the used boiled water(which has received some of the veggies vitamins and a greta way to practice no waste cooking)…slowly add water until you get a mix slightly more liquid then a smoothie.
Then add 2 TBSP of your favorite super foods: chia, flaxseed, spirulina, hemp, etc.
Afterwards, add about 3 to 4 scoops of vegan protein powder or almond flour.
Add again slowly some of the boiled water until you get the consistency of a rich smoothie.
Spread the mix in ice cube or candy molds. Spread it well at the end with spatula in order to avoid spills.
Put to freezer for about 1h and then get them out and spread them in containers. Personally, I use small containers by portion. 1 portion = 5 to 8 cubes depending of size.
Keep in freezer until ready to use. You have 2 options:
1- let them melt in water and shake and drink..
2- mix in mixer with some vegan milk (Oat milk in my case) for about 40 seconds and serve in a glass.
