Today I am sharing a smoothie recipe with you that I created earlier this week. I have been experimenting with Genuine Health products and used on in this smoothie. I also won a contest and got some free samples, so I will wait to do a review on some of the things I have tried until a bit later.
First up, I have some exciting news. I have been working with a local business, Jaydancin & Zoe’s Market Place in Lambeth, ON. They are an organic make-up shop and provider of high quality natural products for body care and they also offer a variety of natural local and organic products sourced from trusted resources in and around London, ON.
This Saturday I will be in store offering nutrition information and helping you to take simple steps to improve your health. This Saturday I will be chatting about…SUGAR! I will have some alternatives and tips to help you reduce your sugar intake and why you should!
This is a great opportunity to meet me and chat! I look forward to being there and seeing everyone who stops by!

Okay, on to the recipe!
Like I said, I have been experimenting with Genuine Health products, in particular the Vegan Greens+ O. It has lots of good ingredients and it is made from 80% organic ingredients. I like that it adds an easy boost to my day in just one scoop and I know I am getting lots of nutrition that is difficult to get from just eating food.
Our food today unfortunately is not as nutritious as it used to be, and while I do believe that supplements are not necessary I think the to thrive with optimal nutrition without supplements is a large challenge! What I like about Genuine Health Greens+ O is that it is whole foods based, I get lots of whole foods in some small package so it isn’t another pill that my body might not breakdown properly and then I have wasted money.
I have only been using this product for about a week and although the flavour is strong (I opted for natural flavour!) it is definitely easy to add to my daily diet and in particular my smoothie!
1 cup almond milk
1 kale leaf
½ cucumber, chopped
½ lemon, juiced (by hand)
1/3 ripe banana
1 scoop Vegan Greens+ O by Genuine Health
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 tbsp hemp oil
Add all ingredients into your blender and blend on high until smoothie. Drink and feel energized!
What do you have when you need an energy boost? Do you take a supplement to get more nutrients into your diet?
