Strawberry Limemade Green Machine Smoothie (Vegan)

Happy friday peeps!

Strawberry Limemade Green Machine Smoothie (7)


It’s hitting the peak of the summer heat, well maybe not the peak, but the later end of the summer turns into a dryer heat that isn’t as stifling. Right now you can cut the air with a knife it’s so humid.

This is the only time of year that reminds me of my childhood growing up in Nashville’s muggyness. It makes me think of the Twilight Zone episode where the sun is getting closer to the earth and everything is melting. Only, I don’t think I get to wake up and find out that the world’s actually freezing over instead like the lead female character did. (I’m a sucker for the classics.)

K, now about this smoothie, it’s only a few simple ingredients, but I wanted to add a little extra fun and make it two toned. However, if you’re not feeling fancy or you’re just in a hurry, you can totally just throw everything in the blender and go. But come on, isn’t the contrast of colors more fun? At least, I think so and the boys thought it was cool too. Stay cool guys (but not too cool for those of you burried in 12 feet of snow right now)!

Prep Time 25 minutes
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients

Base:

  • 2 packed cups fresh spinach
  • juice from 3 medium limes about 1/3 cup
  • 2 heaping cups frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup agave or maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups water or coconut water

Green:

  • 1 packed cup fresh spinach
  • 1 medium avocado pit and skin removed
  • juice and zest from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon agave or maple syrup

Red:

  • 2 heaping cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon agave or maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Combine the ingredients for the base in a blender or food processor and blend until very smooth. Divide the base blend in half (it should be about 4 cups, so 2 cups and 2 cups) leaving one half in blender. Add the ingredients for the green half to blender and blend until smooth. Pour it all out into tall glass cups or jars to fill halfway (use a funnel if needed). Add the other half of base plus the ingredients for red half into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses on top of green mix and serve immediately.
