Electric Green Smoothie Recipe and
a Delicious Giveaway!

When Allison Rivers Samson's new video went live online, I couldn't wait to make my very own Brazil nut milk. It looked so simple and fun! I often make my own cashew nut milk, but I hadn't tried making milk with Brazil nuts. WOW! It is truly creamy, rich, and delicious! I was completely hooked after taking my first sip, and once you try it, you'll fall in love, too!


Such heavenly milk inspired me to create a new smoothie recipe with my favorite organic matcha powder. I feel utterly energized when I start my day with it. And I feel divinely decadent enjoying something that tastes like dessert for breakfast and savoring it slowly through my beautiful, environmentally friendly Glass Dharma straw.


1 1/2 cups Allison's Brazil Nut Milk (you can substitute soy milk if you have a nut allergy)
1 teaspoon Kiss Me Organics Matcha Powder
1 very ripe banana
2 medjool dates, pits and stems removed
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 drops liquid vanilla stevia (optional)

Blend all together, pour into a tall glass, and enjoy!

What a yummy looking smoothie. As for my smoothie secret, hmm.. I would say, add some chocolate powder to your favorite recipe and make it choolicious. :-)

I like adding flaxseed to give it a nutty flavour and some Omegas

Liberty Thompson said...

I always add a banana to take the bite away from the greens. Works every time!

I don't think it's a big secret, but my daughter loves frozen bananas in her smoothies. It seems to make them creamy and "milk"shake-like.

Ashley said...

I freeze my spinach first and it gives the smoothie a great texture! Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway!

Strawberries, ice-cream and milk make our smoothies delicious.

VeganMarr said...

SEVERAL frozen bananas to make it thick & CHILLED & nutrient dense, add just a little water or non dairy milk of choice, and FRESH ORGANIC BLUEBERRIES!! :-)

Terri Cole said...

My smoothie secret is to have all your fruits and/or veggies frozen. This gives you a thick cold smoothie and eliminates the need for ice.

wegman's almond milk!

Yuen C said...

I add some protein powder in it

Andrea I F said...

Frozen baked sweet potato for thicker texture and a little more sweetness besides the banana.

Allie G said...

I use vanilla soymilk with fiber and extra nutrients

Julia Carol said...

I love to add avocado to smoothies to make them extra rich. Also, frozen blueberries ads a lot of sweetness

Tofu Mom (AKA Tofu-n-Sprouts) said...

Allergic to bananas but I use avocados instead to get them creamy!

Eldon L said...

I add yogurt to make it creamier

AnnaZed said...

My secret is that I add a glob of plain cold cooked oatmeal (there is always some of that in our kitchen in the morning); It makes smoothies delightfully creamy.

Delicious must-try smoothie!! My favorite smoothie secret is to use the freshest fruit available (preferably organic) and chop/freeze it the night before. In the morning, no ice needed to blend. The unwatered down flavor is superb! And of course, don't forget the inspired glass when it's time to pour!

I add banana for creaminess and chia seeds for thickness.

Vivian S said...

I add some 2% milk!

Amanda Jorjorian said...

I keep ripe bananas in the freezer all ready to go and I usually add some raw cacao powder for a health kick.

Nic said...

Use frozen fruit!

sara said...

I freeze everything I need for each smoothie together in a smoothie pack and just add almond milk. It makes for an extra creamy smoothie.

verycutekitties said...

I make sure to add bananas and yogurt

If there's a secret, then I haven't found it. I like the way mine come out, but I don't have a secret. I do use coconut milk, because I can't have almond milk.
