If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Instagram lately you know that we’re mildly – scratch that – massively obsessed with this new organic extra virgin olive oil by Kasandrinos. This olive oil is unlike any other you’ve tried before and it will make all your recipes come to life!
There’s been several reports released recently about the olive oil industry and the questionable practices being used by some companies. One specific study, “Report Evaluation of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Sold in California” found many oils labeled “Extra Virgin” actually are anything but pure, with some even containing canola oil in them.
When we heard these reports, we went on a search to find the highest quality, freshest olive oil we could find and that’s where Kasandrinos International comes in.
Offering only the finest Greek organic extra virgin olive oil, we love this olive oil – and it’s founders – so much, that we created a green smoothie in their honor.
We talk a lot about adding nutrient dense “boosts” to your green smoothies – things like flaxseeds, coconut oil, and spirulina.
If you’ve yet to try olive oil in your green smoothie then be sure to check out The Green Ollie recipe below. Refreshing, energizing, and anti-inflammatory, this green smoothie is sure to be a keeper.
With love and green smoothies,
