Creamy Minty Wheatgrass Smoothie
What you need to make this Creamy Minty Wheatgrass Smoothie:
The ingredient list for this smoothie is simple and every ingredient is intentional.
- raw blanched slivered almonds (not sliced)
- vanilla extract
- peppermint extract
- frozen wheatgrass pod (I use WOW Frozen Wheatgrass Juice from Whole Foods)
- zucchini or frozen riced cauliflower – makes it so smooth and creamy and adds more nutrients
- chia seeds – for more dietary fiber, healthy fats, plant-based protein, antioxidants and minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium
- hemp seeds – for more dietary fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals (zinc, iron and more) and a source of complete plant-based protein
- matcha powder – for more antioxidants and a caffeine boost
- raw baby spinach – provides plant-based iron and sneaks more veggies into this recipe. One serving of raw spinach (1/2 cup) has only 5 calories and contains calcium and iron plus 60% of your daily vitamin A and 15% of your daily vitamin C.
