1/2 cup filtered water

1/2 Frozen Banana

1/2 Avocado

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1 Naked Nutrition Pea Protein (optional)


I’ve been inspired lately to put good fuel in my body early in the morning, to set myself up for a great day, instead of filling my stomach with empty carbs that leave me feeling sluggish two hours after ingesting them.

I wanted something quick (didn’t end up being quick but it will be with repetition) and easy and I’ve been eyeing various green juice recipes to try out.

Frozen bananas are an excellent way to chill and thicken your smoothies, or add to oatmeal, and they keep for MONTHS! The banana I used in this recipe had been in my freezer since at least March, it is now September. So buy extra bananas next time you’re out and as soon as they’re ripe throw them in your freezer.

I recommend adding all your fruits, vegetables and, yogurt first, pouring your almond milk and water in last. Save your almonds and turmeric until you have a nice liquid (I highly recommend using the liquify setting, duh) blended from the rest of the ingredients. Add those and finish blending.

Divvy everything up between glasses at your discretion or enjoy that bitch all to yourself. And don’t be afraid to add a little garnish to your glass of any leftover ingredients you might have.

I hope you enjoy!
