Melinda's Green Smoothie

You can celebrate St. Patrick's Day with green beer and green shamrock frosting, which may be fun at the time, but probably won't be for long- or you can celebrate with this green smoothie developed by our General Manager, Melinda. It's full of yummy green veggies, as well as chunks of mango and she gives it an extra boost with the Vega Tropical Tango smoothie powder. Vega was developed by a professional Ironman athlete, intent on creating a plant-based line of pre and post-workout meals on-the-go. Born of the belief that one should not have to compromise between whole food goodness and fast food convenience, all Vega products are nutrient dense, vegan, and make a great addition to balanced diet.

To make Melinda's Green Smoothie you will need:
2 tablespoons hemp or chia seeds
juice from 1 lime
1/2 cup parsley
1 handful kale
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 handful frozen mangoes 
1 dried date, pitted
1 1/2 cups water
1 scoop Vega Tropical Tango smoothie powder

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
