Dating The Greens And The Nutty Seeds: The Peanut Butter Smoothie!
Jane Day is co-author with Dr. John Day of "The Longevity Plan," documenting their journey to China's Longevity Village. "Preparing food for guests has always been a stressful thing - feeling inadequate and fearing that the dishes wouldn't turn out. Posting recipes has been an exercise in the ultimate confrontation of this fear. Gratefully, the joy in figuring out how to make favorite dishes with healthier ingredients now exceeds the fear and I take courage in the idea that maybe I can help someone else do the same."
My cute 12 year old son helped me name and post this smoothie. He wisely advised me that giving my recipies book-like titles would make them far more interesting.
Don’t be fooled by the color of this smoothie, which happens to be a vibrant green. This really tastes like a creamy peanut butter smoothie. It just packs a bunch of extra nutrients without sacrificing taste.
The recipe is simple: unsweetened almond milk, peanut butter, hemp seeds, avocado, spinach (this where it gets its vibrant green), and of course, the DATE!
- 1 Cup Unsweetend Almond Milk
- 1-2 Tablespoon(s) peanut butter
- 2 Teaspoons Hemp seeds
- 1/4 Avocado
- 1 Cup Packed Spinach
- 1-2 Medjool Date(s)
- Blend all ingredients in a high quality blender. (I love finding ways to incorporate hemp, esp after our journeys to Longevity Village and discovering their longevity hemp soup) (Try Trader Joe's PB with flax and chia for extra alpha linolenic acid and omega 3s)
