Banana Carob Smoothie
Though I drink smoothies everyday, it's been awhile since I've created a new recipe for them. However, I've been finding that I can't really tolerate too many types of food anymore.
I used to be able to have gluten here and there, but I got sick from eating it this weekend. And protein powders, I have found, are partly to blame for my digestive issues & cramps.
So what's a girl to do? I've found what helps me thrive, feel energetic & remain focused is.....low fat, raw foods! I'm still eating plain, steamed veggies as well (brussell sprouts, broccoli, etc), to help with digestion. But other than that, my diet has been entirely fruits & veggies for about a week (except for the killer pizza). I do still have some older recipes to post, though, so you will see some cooked foods here & there. I love how this is pushing me to get more creative :) Because oohhhh, I have!
Sooooo after a large introduction, here is my new, naked smoothie, the way nature would want it to be :) lovelovelove this smoothie, & I know you will, too! <3
1 1/2 cups water (or more, as needed)
2 tbs carob powder
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup mango
1) Blend! Drink! Love :)
peace, love, food <3
P.S. more smoothies to come! Including a Satin Green Smoothie ;)
