BenderThiel's Green Drink...Back by popular demand!

I made this for a few of you at last month's Nutrition Meeting at RunTex and have had several people bring this recipe up lately. With the I AM CROSSFIT - Lean Turkey Challenge under way it seemed like a great time to revisit this yummy drink!

1/3 can coconut milk
1/2 avocado
1/2 cucumber - skin and all!
Handful of spinach
2-3 stalks of Kale
Splash of lemon juice
Squeeze of honey
2-3 dashes of cinnamon
Splash of Vanilla
1 serving of veggie based protein powder

I've told a few of you about my new favorite mixture and I thought you ll might want to try it for yourself. It's surprisingly refreshing and sweet :)

Put all of the above in a blender with enough water for it to "blend". I like to blend ice in mine to make it really refreshing.

Do you have a creative way to get your veggies? Tell me about it!


  1. I'll bet that does taste good, especially with ice blended in and served cold.

  2. Blended avocado and cucumber sounds a little odd, but we're gonna give this one a shot at the Wallace household. Thanks, Lisa!!

  3. It's nice to know this. As per i know about green drink from that i like to tell you that it makes you healthy and fit. green drinks contain green foods and green foods boost immunity against disease and have been shown to assist in preventing cancer.They also contain potent amounts of antioxidants such as vitamin C, and E and beta-cartotene that help prevent the ravages of age-accelerating oxidation.

  4. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days..
