3 cups mixed frozen berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1 banana, frozen
½ cup garbanzo beans, (canned, home-cooked or sprouted)
1 TBSP chia seeds
1 TSP stevia
1 handful spinach
juice of ½ lemon
*1/2 – 3/4 Cup extra liquid (water, soy or almond milk) to help blend
Follow the recipe for Level 1 & 2, but you can substitute 2 TBSP raw honey or Sucanat for the stevia.
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste for sweetness and adjust.
*If you don’t have a high speed blender, like a Vita Mix, you will probably need to add some extra liquid in order to get this smoothie to blend well.
Makes 2 large smoothies.
