Show Your True Colors!

There’s no reason to give yourself over to a hot-wings-fat-and-sugar binge just because there’s a big game!  I’ve concocted a couple of team-spirit smoothies to bring some nutrition to your celebration!  These recipes make about 5 cups each, but are easily doubled.

Carrot-Orange-Apple Bash

big+game

You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups carrot juice (Since I have a juicer, I made my own, but Lassen’s carries fresh and delicious carrot juice in our refrigerated cases!)
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • one apple, core removed
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger (I just added a chunk of ginger that was about 1″ x 1/2″)
  • 1 cup mango (I used frozen, but fresh is great too)
  • juice of 1 lemon
big+game
Mix everything in a blender until smooth.  Add more ginger if you’d like!

I love adding fresh apples to my smoothies–they add some body without an overpowering taste (which you sometimes get with bananas.)

Makes about 5 cups

Chill and stir before serving.  Yum! (Go Broncos!)
If you prefer something greener….  Here’s my

Pineapple-Banana-Kale Smash 

You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups Coconut Juice, Milk or Water (I used Juice)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup pineapple (I used frozen, but again, fresh is great!)
  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 banana
  • 5 large kale leaves (I usually remove the thickest part of the stem)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • juice of two limes
  • 2 tsp ginger, if desired
big+game
Blend everything together until well mixed.

The avocado is a nice nutritional addition!

Makes about 5 cups

Chill and then stir before serving.  Delicious!  (Go Seahawks!)
