GUYS. Today is my last day in Portland and I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE. I’ve hung out with SO many amazing people and will be going home feeling so refreshed, relaxed, and pretending that there is no crazy election going on today (I early voted so). Goal for when I get home: convince Mr. Britnell to move here.
For the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to everyone who sent me emails, left comments, and reached out to me after my post on Sunday. I’m overwhelmed with love and support and I can’t tell you how much that means to me. Since I’m still traveling and since I received so many heartfelt messages, it might take me a few days to properly respond to all of them. But again, thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Today I’m here with a super simple but AMAZING green smoothie recipe. You know how much I love my green smoothies ;) Everytime I think that I’ve tried all of the veggie/ fruit/ greens combos that I exist, I think of a new one. Like this Green Apple Green Smoothie. I made it once and then made it again everyday for about a week because it was SO YUMMY (and because apples are so readily available right now).
I recently posted THIS vegan caramel sauce it is is seriously one of my all time favorite recipes on the blog. I can’t even get over how much it tastes like traditional caramel but like, even BETTER somehow. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend doing so (and then using it to make this smoothie!).
I debated putting the caramel sauce into the smoothie but decided to instead just drizzle it around the glass and add a little on top. However, it’s good enough that I will NOT judge you if you just pour a little right into the smoothie (or even better, just eat it by the spoonful).
This is also very reminiscent of a sour apple smoothie and I love it for that! It’s a little sour, very sweet, and I love the extra nutrients in it from the greens. I can’t wait for y’all to make this!
That’s all I have for you today.
Pro-tip, stay off of social media today…you’ll be vastly saner! ;)
See How to Make the Smoothie:
- 1 green apple
- 2 handfuls of greens
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds
- 1 frozen banana (could leave this out but sub for a few ice cubes)

- sprinkle of cinnamon (or a couple sprinkles)
- 2 pitted dates
- Vegan Caramel Sauce
- Add all of the ingredients (minus the caramel) to a high speed blender and blend on high.
- Drizzle a little of the caramel sauce around your glass and pour the smoothie into the glass.
- Top with a bit more of the caramel sauce and ENJOY!
- Eat a spoonful of the caramel sauce by the spoonful ;)
