What’s in My Smoothies!?

Check out a video of a detailed look inside all the ingredients that goes into one of my morning smoothies!

Ingredients

  • Bag of Watercress (Grower Pete’s) can get it at Sprouts
  • two handfuls of Spinach and Kale
  • half a cup of Pineapple
  • half a cup of Strawberries
  • 1 scoop (5 grams) of L-Glutamine
  • spoonful of Flax Seeds
  • 80z of Almond milk

You can switch up the fruits. I love putting raspberries in with Watercress because it blends well with it and covers the bad taste of Watercress. You can also add Chia seeds instead of Flax seeds. Mix it up and have some fun with it. If you are looking to begin eating healthy the best place to start is by having a green smoothie everyday and drinking a lot of water!

Have a happy and healthy day,

    These are awesome! I’ve got a few questions for you about the blog post. What do you use L-glutamine for? I am starting to get into green smoothies but haven’t really heard much about this. Do you ever use Cow’s milk or are you pure almond milk? Do you ever put in things with a bit more protein or is that not really your emphasis for these smoothies? Also, unrelated to this post, I remember watching you after your ACL and it looked like you were struggling to slide defensively, but it looked like you eventually were as quick as ever sliding laterally. Do you feel like it was just getting back comfortable on your knee or did you do any specific exercises to improve lateral movement? If so, what type of exercises did you do? I enjoy following your career, wish the Jazz had taken a chance on you.

      Thanks! I hope the information provided is useful! I use L-glutamine post workouts to help my body recover. It’s an amino acid that aids in helping the body recover. I usually just use almond milk in my smoothies. If I do have milk it’s raw milk. I add protein to my night smoothie, but for my morning one protein isn’t the emphasize.
      With My ACL it was just a matter of getting more confident and comfortable.. Did you hurt your ACL?

        Dude, thanks for replying so quick. Nope no ACL injury for me luckily, just curious how you got so much quicker so fast at the start of the year after your injury. It was pretty noticeable to me. Do you ever use honey in smoothies? or too sugary? any fruits you avoid in smoothies because of high sugar content? This is WAY off topic but do the mavs consider you as a small ball 4 at all? I think you can do everything Draymond does as a small ball 5. Mavs death lineup, haha.

          No problem man! I honestly just worked my butt off and ate super clean to make it back from my ACL injury.. I use honey sometimes. I use berries and pineapple for inflammation. for my team now I play positions 1-4 so I’m sure they have considered me at that.. I’ll be back to the NBA soon!
