If you are looking for a fun way to take your daily green powder, than here is a great recipe for you! This Super Green Smoothie is a simple way to sneak in your powdered greens, and a few other Ojas enhancing “superfoods” in one satiating recipe. Being high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants, while providing a wide variety of healing properties for the body and mind, this smoothie can easily become a daily staple for your Spring and Summer days.
I personally enjoy this smoothie as a pick-me-up snack around 10am or so, but it also can be a great breakfast all in itself! With all of the nutrients this smoothie provides, it is naturally Ojas promoting, energy boosting and a great sweet treat to curve your sugar cravings in a healthy way. The avocado and coconut oil provide some much needed essential fats that will help you to digest the smoothie, absorb the nutrients and reduce the dry quality of the green powder.
