So I got my wisdom teeth pulled out… And that was something. Jaw bruises, stitches, and all that comes with it. I only got one out at a time because they were both the bottom teeth that needed to come out. Well that was double the annoyance of dealing with post-tooth extraction. Oh and translating a cookbook at the same time, which was only tempting ahaha.
What did make it better, was the yummy smoothies I had to make and drink with a straw (hihihi). I had to get creative and make smoothies that were not only delicious, but also that were filling and nutritious.
Green Energy Smoothie
Yields: 2 extra large glasses
2 handfuls spinach
1/3 cup strawberries
1/3 cup pineapple
1/3 cup mango
1 scoop protein powder of your choice
1 tablespoon coconut flakes
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 1/2 cup of coconut water (or milk, or water, or orange juice)
Blend all the fruits and vegetables with the liquid until smooth . You may also add ice if you like your smoothies very cold.
Sprinkle with chia seeds and coconut flakes.
I never add a sweetener to my juices or smoothies. However, maple syrup, honey, or agave are all good and healthy alternatives.
