Copycat Whole Foods Green Trekker Smoothie Recipe
I have a very special guest for you today! My friend Emily is helping me out while I’m in Portland this week by blogging about her famous Copycat Whole Foods Green Trekker Smoothie recipe! This brings a lot of search engine results to Almost Getting it Together so I didn’t want to disappoint all of the people coming to my blog looking for it. (Look at that, you get a blogging tip and a recipe – this post is a two-fer!) I’ll let Em take it from here.
Hey everyone! This is Emily and I’m making my blogging debut with a green smoothie recipe that will rock your world.
Cass and I discovered the Green Trekker on a weekend trip to Miami last summer and it’s been love ever since. This thing was my saving grace after too many Cuban sandwiches, mojitos, champagne cruises, and sweltering morning runs around South Beach. We would crawl into Whole Foods dripping in sweat every morning to order one. (And always paid with some seriously drenched dollar bills from the key pocket of my running shorts – so gross.)
I promise you, this thing is the best. You have to try it. Unfortunately it couldn’t heal my horrific sunburn from day one of the vacation, but that’s no surprise. Nobody expected me to handle the Miami sun well. I’ve never been tan a day in my life.
So here it is! I made a few modifications from the Whole Foods Market recipe (I added almond butter and chia seeds), so feel free to modify as you please.
- 6 ounces coconut water
- ½ frozen banana
- ½ cup frozen blueberries
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (or ½ scoop chocolate protein powder)
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 3 pitted dates
- 1-2 cups baby spinach
- Ice cubes
- Blend all ingredients (except ice cubes) until smooth.
- Add optional ice cubes for thickness or consistency.
