Green is Good (Cheech's Original Powerhouse Smoothie) (*Raw *Vegan *GF)

Cheech's Original Powerhouse Smoothie
After reading about 'superfoods' I decided to come up with a smoothie that incorporated some of the best.  I drink this probably at least 5/7 mornings for breakfast.  It's loaded with protein, fiber, omegas, lignans and energy-giving ingredients! 
1 cup non-dairy milk ( I use unsweetened hemp milk)
2 T. Hemp protein powder
1 T. ground flax seed
1 tsp spirulina 
handful of greens (I usually use spinach or kale)
3/4 banana
handful of berries (you can use fresh or frozen)
approx 3 T goji berries

Blend all ingredients.

*The spirulina does have somewhat of a strong flavor but you can extra sweetener to this by using a vanilla flavored "milk" or by adding dates, agave nectar or honey*

I've attached a link on the benefits of spirulina:

  1. I kind of love this for breakfast. You can also use a rice protein powder if you don't have the hemp.
