Rainbow Smoothie Recipe

rainbow smoothieA plum, moringa leaf (provides protein) and another leafy green like Okinawan spinach, half a banana, half an orange, strawberries, cranberry hibiscus leaf, blueberries, chia seeds, stevia powder (for sweetness) pure water, almond milk and a few ice cubes.

Begin by soaking the chia seeds in almond milk and water. They will swell up and soften in a few minutes. Meanwhile, prep your other ingredients by rinsing, peeling and removing seeds or pits.

Add the rest of the prepared fruits and vegetables. Sprinkle in the stevia powder. If you have a real stevia plant, all the better.

Top it off with enough almond or coconut milk to allow it to blend nicely. Blend it up good and pour it over the ice cubes. Enjoy!

Go ahead and substitute any of the fruits and vegetables for what you have on hand or what is in season. Just try to represent all the colors of the rainbow. Purple, red, yellow, orange, blue, and green.
