Johnny’s Combo’s – Smoothie 27

I numbered this smoothie based on the day of the month I made it. A little tart, but you can sweeten it with date sugar, monkfruit, stevia or any other non-sugar non-artificial sweetener of your choice.

This one has a nice purple color.

This is the first time I’ve tried the mushroom powder. I found it at one of the grocery stores (Sprouts Farmers Market) on sale and decided to give it a try. From what I’ve read, mushrooms are really good for you, and if you don’t want to bother having to cook them or prepare them, this is the way to go.

The lemon juice was not measured. Actually, none of it was measured, those values are all approximations.

The true taste test: my wife. And she liked it, though she said it was a little tart.

Ingredients:

  • Kale*, red, 1 cup
  • Spinach*, 1 cup
  • Banana*, 1 whole
  • Blackberries*, 1/2 cup
  • Raspberries*, 1/2 cup
  • Cranberries, frozen, 1/2 cup
  • Strawberries*, frozen, 1/2 cup
  • Berry mix, frozen, 1/2 cup (includes Blackberries, Wild Blueberries)
  • Ground flaxseed*, 1 tbsp
  • Ground chia seed*, 1 tbsp
  • Mushroom powder*, 4 tsp
  • 2-3 cups water
  • Lemon juice*, about 1/4 cup

*Organic

I can’t remember if the cranberries were organic or not. I also don’t recall what else was in the berry mix, but I think there was a third fruit, maybe raspberry. I also don’t recall whether it was organic or not, though I think it was, as the cranberries probably were, too.

The mushroom powder was from 2 sources, both Om brands: Cordyceps and a Combination (Immune).

Add ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.

Makes 4 servings.
