Hawaiian Smoothie: Green Smoothie of the Week (Green Thickie)



Green Hawaiian Smoothie: Perfect for travelling

Hawaiian Smoothie: Green Smoothie of the week (Green Thickie)Sometimes it’s just nice to keep it simple and go back to basics with good sweet, fresh ripe fruit as the base for our green smoothies.  This Hawaiian smoothie is naturally sweet so doesn’t need any additional sweeteners.  I found this recipe on the Girl In The Green Apron.  The original recipe included hemp oil but I prefer to include whole foods in my smoothies and save the oils for my salads when I will enjoy them much more.  So I added hemp seeds but you could add any type of seeds you have.

My husband, baby and I are preparing for a visit to family in Scotland and England for 10 days so I’ve been busy trying to organise this trip.  Trying to organise travelling with a baby has involved much more thought and time than it used to with only the two of us, especially when she’s now eating solids, is a vegan and I’m trying to keep her eating healthy whole foods.  I’ve been wondering where will she eat, how will I prepare her foods, will she mess up other people’s houses?  etc etc.  A holiday is no longer a holiday when you have children, it’s just taking your normal chores to someone else’s house!  Anyway, I’m really looking forward to seeing my family, some who have never met my baby.

I’m packing my blender so I can continue making green thickies for us all.  Usually I just eat unhealthily when I go away and feel tired and run down the whole time. This time I’m determined that me and my baby at least are going to eat healthily as normal and have as much energy as we normally do.  It’s also the first time I’ll be away from my vitamix, so I’ll be taking my old cheap blender (ah, how I remember the bottom falling out of that blender full of burning hot soup and scalding my hand.  I know it was a stupid thing to do to put the soup in while it was still boiling, but while I was pregnant, I just wasn’t thinking straight and kept having very silly and quite serious accidents- I blame baby brain!) Anyway, I’ve never attempted making green thickies in a cheaper blender so I’ll be in a much better position to know what works with other types of blenders when I return.   I’ll let you know if it all worked out well when we get back.

It’s recipes like this Hawaiian Green Smoothie that are perfect for travelling as they just contain a few simple ingredients, nothing too fancy, nothing that can go too far wrong.  I’m just going to be making very simple recipes while I’m away with fruits that don’t require too much chopping or peeling.  How do you eat when you go away?  Do you still carry on making green smoothies?
