In the distant future, let’s say the year 3020, I would assume food would be consumed differently. Everything would revolve around efficiency. Instead of “real food”, we’d all be eating pills, powders, and shakes of sorts. Turkey and stuffing shake for Thanksgiving? Roasted salmon with spiced cauliflower in conveniently packaged bars? Or how about three meals worth of calories and nutrients in an easy to swallow pill? Perhaps I read too many sci-fi and fantasy books. But if that is really how the future of food looks like, I think I’ll just live off of fruit and veggie smoothies. a work week’s of fruit and vegetable smoothies While I’m still on the fence whether smoothies are truly “healthy,” I think these smoothies are super tasty! I feel so much better starting the day off with something bright and fresh. Once upon a time I was skeptical about green smoothies. Spinach in my drink? But ever since trying my first green smoothie circa 2014, I’ve been hooked. Ginger Banana Green Smoothie This one is my favorite of the series. The combination of ginger, banana, and mango is so tropical and invigorating. The ginger really packs a punch and I LOVE IT! 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled1/2 medium banana1 cup coconut water1 cup mango chunks, frozenhandful fresh baby kale leaveshandful fresh baby spinach leaves Banana Mango Green Smoothie: This is the perfect introduction to green smoothies.
