KATJA GLIESON’S VEGAN SUMMER NIGHT CARAMEL GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE
This vegan green smoothie was SO TASTY when I first tested it, that I knew we had to include it in one of our free superfood smoothie challenges!
The almond butter and dates add the perfect caramel flavor, it’s hard to tell it’s a kale green smoothie!
Katja enjoys this delicious high protein green smoothie post-workout.
Blender Babes found Katja Glieson first on the live streaming app Periscope.
We not only watched her make several vegan green smoothie recipes, but we also watched the trials and tribulations that young women face as they follow their dreams.
We felt a need to share Katja’s favorite vegan recipes as well as her inspirational story with our community. In the meantime, we highly recommend watching her as Frozen’s Elsa in the viral music video, Princess Rap Battle.
A high powered blender, such as a Blendtec or Vitamix, will easily pulverize sticky dates and kale.
If you don’t have a power blender yet don’t worry, you can also make this green smoothie recipe in a “regular” blender using these tips!
