Do you have any yummy ones to share? Just ordered some pea protein powder. Want to make some green-ish smoothies, not too, too high in calories. Anyone have some kind of easy ones to share? And without terribly pricey ingredients?

Our goals are to up our protein, up our probiotics and increase our consumption of greens.

Big thanks from this smoothie novice wanting to learn.

LittleDolphin sorry I missed this until now!
This is our most used and loved smoothie recipe. It comes from minimalistbaker.com

Healthy Orange Smoothie

1 C sweet potato puree, we use 1 baked or nuked sweet potato. Allow to cool
1 ripe banana sliced and frozen
1 T almond or peanut butter
1/4 tsp of ginger, tumeric and cinnamon, we use 1 tsp fresh grated ginger root in place of dry.
1 - 2 T flax seed meal or chia seeds
1 1/2 C non-dairy milk
1 peeled orange

Add all ingredients, milk first, to blender and blend until smooth. Adjust spices and sweetness to taste. Makes 2 servings.

Enjoy!

Thanks! Just what I was looking for...

The only change I think I'll make is using pumpkin puree instead of the sweet potato. Just easier and similar in nutrition.

Do you think it would still taste good if I added some fresh spinach??

I don't see why not? Maybe just add a little and judge for yourself. Me I would rather drink as is and have a spinach salad but there are no wrong ways of eating healthy foods!

That sounds great!

Sometimes we make and eat home-made Museli for breakfast. Such an easy no-cook recipe is from Helen Nearing's simple vegetarian cookbook:

4 apples (she says to grate them but I chop 'em up in my Ninja)
2 cups old fashioned oats, uncooked
1/4 cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
lemon juice, 2 T. (and you can include some zest, too)

Mix that up and eat! Sometimes I add Chia seeds, powdered flax, and some chopped walnuts for more protein)

I like mine with a bit of maple syrup and some oat or almond milk, though is fine without, too.

The above recipe makes about 4 breakfasts times two for DH and me...sticks to the ribs for a long time--very dense and nutrient-rich. Keeps, covered, in frig for 4-5 days.

I have read about the Nearings. Very interesting folks. They seemed to live in the past, yet their lifestyle appeals to the modern " back to nature" movement.
Thank you for this muesli recipe! I will give it a go real soon!

Having a hellish day today with technology, I'm kind of wanting to live in the Nearings' non-tech, natural world. They wrote their books on typewriters--no passwords or crashes (except, on occasion, a changing of a typewriter ribbon).

Sounds most appealing to me right about now.

Tech is a boon when it works--but not for me, not today, anyhow.

Better go eat a big bowl of Helen's museli, followed by a red wine chaser. lol.
