A journey towards whole food, plant based, healthy eating….

Purple lunch smoothie

Leave a comment

Another “What do I do for lunch?” day. This is lunch:

Purple (green) lunch smoothie

Apart from the divine colour 🙂 this really tastes delicious. And it doesn’t even contain blueberries for the purple colour!

2 handfuls of kale                                                                                                                                          IMG_1199-001

2 handfuls of broccoli florets

1 cup left over fruit salad (use WHATEVER. I had grapes, watermelon and rockmelon)

2 T crushed pineapple (again, use fresh, or nothing at all if that’s where your fridge is at)

1/2 cup of frozen raspberries

1/2 cup plain soy yoghurt (see note below)

2 handfuls pepitas

2 T protein powder

1/2 cup oat milk (or almond)

Blend with some ice and enjoy the beauty of nutrition without having to cook!

* A note on soy yoghurt. Yoghurt is not an ideal product when vegan. Soy yoghurt is obviously vegan friendly but it comes with other pitfalls. We use this one.

As you can see it has sugar in it which is the less-than-ideal. But on the upside it is Non-GMO (There’s no way we would buy a GM soy product!) and there are no artificial colours (another big problem with yoghurts!).

This company also make fruit flavours which is what we give the kids and they are artificial colour-free. They are the only company we have found that makes soy yoghurt without colours so yay for them! There is a lot of conversation about how good soy is for people anyhow. I am comfortable with it in moderation as long as it is Non GMO and artificial colour free.
