“This smoothie is chock-full with micro nutrients and chlorophyll from leafy greens, healthy fats from avocado and vitamin C from lime.
It is low in sugar if you choose to use stevia, and will keep you energized and happy for hours with it’s blended creaminess.“
1 cup leafy greens – spinach (mild) or kale (a bit stronger in flavor)
1-2 limes, depending on juiciness
1/2 vanilla bean or 1/2 tsp extract
2-3 cups coconut water / water / light coconut milk / almond milk
3-4 pitted dates or sweetener of choice: Stevia/Xylotol
1 cup of ice (optional)
Cut avocado in half, remove pit.
Scoop avocado meat into your blender.
Place lime on your work bench, roll it with a bit of pressure from your hands – this will help the juice come out more easily.
Slice in half, juice one part, and either juice the second half as well or remove the skin and white parts, and throw the whole lime into your blender.
Add remaining ingredients.
Blend on low and gradually increase speed to maximum until the smoothie is thick and creamy.
Store refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

“soft dates” = medjool are usually best. If necessary, soak briefly and drain. The soaking water is super sweet by the way!
