Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie

I think after the eventful week I’ve had here on Nutrition Stripped, it was only fitting for the first recipe to share on “the new look” of Nutrition Stripped to be a green smoothie…had to. This smoothie is also perfect for all of your green holiday celebrations this St. Patrick’s Day! My Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie is perfection, absolute nourishing perfection and so deliciously simple to make! I love this smoothie for breakfast, a snack, or even with a meal for a boost of those greens I simply adore.

Alright everyone, prepare yourself for one of the most refreshing, creamy, spring-like smoothies you’ve ever tasted. Bold statement I know, it’s that good. This is my go-to smoothie in the spring when I want something filling, but also “light” on my digestion to keep my energy levels up when I’m out and about, writing, shooting, etc. This is definitely a meal in a glass as it contains healthy fats, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates all in one lovely package- if you’re looking to make this a snack, simply cut the ingredients in half or save half for later!

Bubble Water

Bubble Water is something I created several summers ago when I was craving a classic drink I used to love, bubble tea. I wanted something similar but also far less in calories, carbohydrates, and refined sugar. Bubble Water is a combination of naturally flavored water + chia seeds. Simple as that! It’s incredibly hydrating, filling, loaded with healthy fats, protein, and fiber all into one easy-to-drink glass. It’s also a delicious way to stay hydrated by using whatever “base” you enjoy!

Stripped Green Juice

You’re all familiar with the Stripped Green Smoothie by now, and if you’re not, what are you waiting for? I share all things green smoothies and why I adore the signature smoothie of Nutrition Stripped. Today I want to focus on drinking something else that’s green, the Stripped Green Juice! Oh yes, get ready for another veggie filled elixir to try out. In my previous post, we discussed all things Juicing 101 so I thought it was perfect timing to introduce you to something else I eat/drink on a weekly basis.

I get it, drinking something green isn’t necessarily the “norm” in our society, but drinking your greens whether in a smoothie or juice has been the buzz for quite some time, especially around New Years, for good reason. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are nutrient dense in comparison to any breakfast cereal out there, which is a Standard American Diet (SAD) meal in the morning; and they’re loaded with fiber (again something that’s lacking in our SAD diets).

Egg-not Nog

Let the party begin! Egg-not Nog is a less food-coma inducing holiday drink made from all natural whole food ingredients…except the bourbon- that’s the real deal. It’s a play on traditional eggnog that contains cashews, macadamia nuts, warming spices, and some other goodies. This Egg-not Nog is a vegan version lower in sugar and fat,  but still tastes dangerously good!

Even though I do enjoy farm fresh eggs ever so often, eggnog has been something I’ve never enjoyed. I first tried traditional eggnog with my family several years ago and I immediately thought “gross…”, it wasn’t until I tried it again a couple years ago and the flavor grew on me. The thought of mixing eggs + alcohol always turned my stomach upside town, but the essence of eggnog is really a great recipe. It’s thick, creamy, has all of the great warming spices of the season, and let’s not forget… it’s boozy. We all can indulge in a little bit this time of year and this Egg-not Nog is no exception!

Gingerbread Molasses Smoothie

Tis’ the season…of gingerbread! I LOVE ginger therefore, it’s natural for me to gravitate towards gingerbread cookies and everything ginger infused. I wanted to make a special treat and a twist on the classic gingerbread cookie, so meet the Gingerbread Molasses Smoothie. It’s a super thick, creamy, chilled, and full of sweet fruits, warming spices, and nutrient dense! The cold smoothie filled with warming spices of nutmeg, all spice, ginger, and cinnamon make this a wonderful ying-yang balance of warming and cooling foods.

In comparison to a yummy gingerbread cookie, this smoothie contains far more fiber, healthy fats, protein, iron, vitamin C, and minerals. All of these macronutrients and micronutrients are even more important this time of year for our bodies when we may be under a little more stress (good or bad stress) because of the holidays, traveling, working, socializing, etc. All my ladies out there will also love this smoothie because of one mineral in particular.
