Recipe: Lucy’s ‘Go Green’ Vegan Green Smoothie

Are you looking to ‘go green’ or just searching for a new smoothie recipe to try?

If so, then this is the post for you… {scroll for printable recipe sheet} 😉

Lucy's 'Go Green' Vegan Green Smoothie

My first vegan breakfast and actually, my first meal of Veganuary overall was this beauty I concocted on New Year’s Day.

Lucy's 'Go Green' Vegan Green Smoothie

It was totally delicious, provided tons of energy to get us though until lunchtime and just looked completely healthy! {probably because it really, REALLY was…}

I’ve made green smoothies before so I know that the biggies are the spinach and kale. I chose the rest of the fruit/veggies based on my experiences of those which have complemented each other in the past and what works well for that desperately needed morning boost.

Smoothie Ingredients

So, like a witch brewing a potion in her newly-vegan cauldron, with a cackle and some magic words, I came up with this gorgeous green delight. What a perfect way to kick off the new year and our new healthy lifestyle!

Lucy's 'Go Green' Vegan Green Smoothies

When I’d finalised the recipe, I chopped up and prepared the rest of the fresh produce and popped it in to individual freezer bags with each holding enough ingredients to make a single smoothie at a time.

That way, all I need to do each morning is take it out of the freezer, whack it in the blender and add my kale, spinach, almond milk and peanut butter.

Smoothie Ingredients in Freezer BagsI’ve also been using the Indigo Nutrition Kick Ass Vegan Smoothie Mix I received as part of my pack from the guys over at Veganuary.

The mix contains superfoods and vitamins such as organic spirulina powder, chlorella powder and chia seed protein powder together with a bunch of other really healthy stuff which makes it perfect for a pre or post workout smoothie.

If you’re following a vegan diet, the mix is particularly useful because it contains ALL of the essential amino acids us earthlings need.

So, what else is in the smoothie and how do you make it?

    Putting them in the little bags is such a clever idea. I normally don’t make smoothies on weekdays because of the time!

      I was worried about the time too but the freezer bags have made it SO much easier! Definitely worth doing if you can! X X

    I love your pics and the mason jars are fab! I’m a big fan of smoothies because I’ve been trying to eat healthily for some time now and it’s a great way to get loads of nutrition in one go, especially in the morning when I struggle to eat. Thanks for the tip about the vegan smoothie mix, I’m going to see if I can find that in health food stores near me.

      Ah thank you, they were just cheapies from B & Ms.
      The vegan smoothie mix has been great, it’s definitely given mine a boost and I have tons of energy afterwards 🙂

    I love smoothies and would love to begin making them myself at home this year. This recipe sounds lovely and the glasses you served your smoothies in look fab too!

    • January 15, 2016 / 10:52 PM

      Aw thanks, the glasses were really cheap, I got 4 for £3.99 at B & Ms 🙂
      I was worried that it would take too long every morning but as I freeze my ingredients it is probably quicker than toast!

    Oh wow these look amazing, I am so sad I can’t eat peanut butter. Thanks for all the vegan insp babe. Thanks too for linking up to #Tastytuesdays

      Oh no! Are you allergic? I don’t actually like it as I hate peanuts but I must admit it added a lovely touch to the recipe 🙂 X X
