Culinary Recipes with Chef Nige: Vitamin-Rich PB&J Smoothie

This is definitely my favorite go-to smoothie. (Not to mention, I’m always up for a reason to just throw a scoopful of nut butter butter into something.) The Power Greens smoothie powder is an easy way to throw in some of my favorite vitamin and mineral rich green plants like Nettle leaf and Moringa.  Full of antioxidant  packed berries, energy and fiber packed nut butter, and energizing green herb powder (you don’t even notice is there), your off to a good start or set for an energy boost in the middle of the day.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 cup frozen berries of choice (I like a frozen berry blend!)

2 cups milk of choice (I like unsweetened almond or soy)

½ banana

2 tablespoons peanut or almond butter

1 pitted date or 1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)

1 teaspoon THS Power Greens Smoothie blend

½- 1 cup ice

 

Method:

Grab a blender.  Add ingredients in the following order (seriously it’s a game changer): Pour your milk in, green powder, nut butter, frozen berries, ice. Buzz until blended, 30-60 seconds for most blenders.  Pour and enjoy!

Nicole Worthington has been drawn to the Pacific Northwest much of her life, but finally made the jump to Portland a few summers back. With a background in cooking, Yoga, and the healing power of food, Herbalism has been a wonderful addition to her life energetically and physically. The plants have provided much solace and healing during a time of loss and grief, as well as providing overall balance in the body and mind. Nicole is confident that Herbalism is the Peoples’ Medicine, and by making a cup of tea you are already denying oppressive systems that reject self care and complete wellness. Nicole has learned much from the plants and spends time honoring, listening, and being open to all the wisdom they have to offer. Nicole feels blessed to continue her journey with all the beautiful beings here at The Herb Shoppe and is excited to share the knowledge and insight she has learned with an open heart and mind.

When Nicole is not learning from the plants, she can be found immersed in a thrift store, goofing around with friends, or listening to records while playing in the kitchen. :)
