I love playing around with the smoothies I make, and it’s usually because I check my fridge, and realize oh crap I have to go shopping. So, I mix together whatever I have left! Today’s Green Goddess Smoothie was born because of it, and it ended up being DELICIOUS & NUTRITIOUS! BAM!


  • Handful of Baby Kale Salad Mix
  • 3/4 Avocado
  • Lemon Wedge squeezed in mixture
  • Couple pinches of turmeric
  • About inch of ginger root
  • About 1 tsp of coconut oil
  • About 1/2 can of coconut water
  • Topped with hemp seeds


  • Blend up the yumminess! (I used my Vitamix)

The Green Goddess’s Other Health Benefits

  • Aids in digestion
  • Anti-inflammatory & great for the immune system
  • Promotes Eye Health
  • Fights free radicals (Could have cancer fighting properties)
  • Regulates sugar levels
  • Lowers cholesterol levels
  • Hydrating
  • And the list could go on

We should strive to eat a limited amount of unhealthy processed foods as possible. (I’m not saying that this smoothie wasn’t processed, it was. I made it with my Vitamix, and that is a process.) What it doesn’t have is a shit ton of chemicals, and ingredients that I can’t even name. Go for fresh foods whenever possble!

*Ps. In the picture above, that’s baby kale with tuna mixed with hummus, celery, & more avocado!

Healthy Eating. Healthy Training Everyone!!!
