Popeye’s Secret Smoothie
Maca, yogurt, and lime combine to make this refreshingly citrusy – banana adds luscious texture and sweetness. Your kids will love to “drink like Popeye!”
All of the following measures can be used approximately and altered to fit your taste.
2 loosely packed cups spinach leaves
1 cup coconut water
1 banana, preferably frozen
1 lime, squeezed (2 if there is very little juice) – or if you don’t have a lime, use lemon
4 tbsp raw organic maca
3/4 cup yogurt, plain (regular or coconut, for a vegan version)
1/4 cup chia
2 dried figs
Honey or maple syrup to taste, if you like your smoothies sweet
To Make: Add all of the ingredients to a high-powered blender, and mix. Tamp down as needed to make sure everything blends completely. Taste and adjust sweetness if needed. Enjoy the rush of power!
