…because it’s cinqo de mayo month!
This smoothie is the bomb: everything from its name and colour to the ingredients makes us happy. If you feel like getting really fancy, serve it in a margarita glass and enjoy on a sunny spring day!
Remember that when any recipe calls for fruit peels, try to buy organic. If this is not available to you, diligently wash your fruits and veggies with a produce cleaner, such as Nature Clean.
From onegreenplanet.org author Michaell Johnson
- 1 peeled and cored apple
- 1/4 lemon with the peel on
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 2 cups frozen watermelon
- 5 pitted dates
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- dash cinnamon
- dash of salt
- 2-3 cups of orange juice (whatever is your desired thickness)
Blend the all ingredients!
If you aren’t using a high-speed blender, blend the greens in the orange juice first and add the hemp seeds (unless you are using a powdered protein instead). That way you will have a smoother texture.
