I am so excited to share this green smoothie recipe with you! I started up Bikram Yoga again at my local studio that I have gone on and off for 10 years. The owner is an amazing woman who fully recovered from major back surgery with the help of yoga. What I love about this yoga is that this is the only place that I get a really good sweat. (I have a really hard time sweating). Plus, I get a really good stretch, build muscle and detox. I also eat healthier, drink tons of water and feel lighter. Plus, this is the only yoga I can bring my daughter to; we hold hands when lying down in yoga and its melts my heart. I started bringing her when she was four years old! Time flies too fast being a Mom!
My latest craving after doing hot yoga is a green smoothie. After hot yoga, that is all I want! So after yoga, I go to my local smoothie shop. They make this AMAZING green smoothie called “Happy Green Smoothie”. It is SO GOOD! You can’t even taste the greens! All you taste are banana, a hint of ginger and dates. I love it! I wanted to re-create this for you guys and here it is. This Restorative Banana Ginger Green Smoothie tastes identical to the one I get even though the ingredients are slightly different. I am really happy that I can create this at home because to be honest, I have been craving this almost daily and now I can have this at home too, and so can you! This was what I had for dinner last night!
This Restorative Banana Ginger Green Smoothie can be made in 5 minutes or less and contains fresh and healthy ingredients. It is made with banana, spinach, fresh ginger root, dates, cashews, water and ice. I use my Vita-Mix Blender which I absolutely love, but any blender will work! These are simple accessible ingredients you can purchase at your local grocery store.
After a work-out, its great to have something that has potassium, protein and detoxifying ingredients. You get all of that in this green smoothie. It is no wonder that I crave this after an intense work-out!
