Rainbow Smoothie Recipe
A plum, moringa leaf (provides protein) and another leafy green like Okinawan spinach, half a banana, half an orange, strawberries, cranberry hibiscus leaf, blueberries, chia seeds, stevia powder (for sweetness) pure water, almond milk and a few ice cubes.
Start by putting the chia seeds and the pure water in the blender. Let them soak for 20 minutes if you have time. If you are in a hurry though, don’t worry about the soaking time. Add the rest of the prepared fruits and vegetables. Sprinkle in the stevia powder. If you have a real stevia plant, all the better. Top it off with enough almond or coconut milk to allow it to blend nicely. Blend it up good and pour it over the ice cubes. Enjoy! Go ahead and substitute any of the fruits and vegetables for what you have on hand or what is in season. Just try to represent all the colors of the rainbow. Purple, red, yellow, orange, blue, and green.
