Sprout-o-licious Green Smoothie with Pea Sprouts

I made a wonderful green smoothie this morning with a bunch of fresh sprouts and just had to share the recipe. This made 2 servings:

Sprout-o-licious Green Smoothie
1 3/4 frozen banana
3 oz Baby Spinach (about 2 handfuls)
2 handfuls Pea Sprouts
5 small pineapple chunks
2 Tablespoons Chia Seed Gel
1 3/4 c water
2 tsp Probiotic Powder (I just started taking Nature’s Way Super Probiotic)
Dash Stevia (to taste – depends on ripeness of bananas for me)
5 ice cubes

Blend in Vitamix! Check out my previous post on chia seeds on how to make Chia Gel.

This morning, I had a delicious Green Smoothie for breakfast. Here is the recipe:

Two Frozen Bananas
Handful Frozen Blueberries
2 large handfuls spinach
3 stalks celery
2 tablespoons chia seed gel
About 8 ice cubes
2 cups water

It was so delicious! My husband and I split it, but I also had some raw granola. My appetite int he morning is nearly insatiable! Oh, I think I had an apple too.

My Favorite Raw Food Dessert Right Now – ‘Chocolate’ Ice Cream

One of my favorite weekend treats before going raw was Ben and Jerry’s Halfbaked Fro Yo. For those of you who have not had it, it is half chocolate chip cookie dough and half brownie chunk frozen yogurt. My husband and I would split a container at least once a month. Believe it or not, I have found a raw replacement that I love just as much if not better!

All you do is blend
3 frozen bananas with about
2 Tablespoons raw carob powder and
2 ‘scoops’ stevia (I use the scoop in the container).
I blend in the Vitamix until everything is mixed and then dish out with a spatula into little parfait glasses. We sometimes add our homemade gRAWnola and even some raw agave nectar. HEAVENLY! and GUILTLESS!!
