Do you want to lose weight or trim belly fat?
Do you want glowing skin, hair and nails?
Do you want to boost your energy and mood in the morning naturally?
Greens are the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. They help to maintain our internal rainforest and cleanse our bodies and cells on the highest level. I drink a green smoothie every morning to look and feel my best. It helps kick off my day with an nutrient-rich energy boost, and helps detox my body before I eat anything else. In fact, days that I skip when I'm traveling or staying at a friends house, my body and cells are aching for this smoothie. A green smoothie in the morning really does make all the difference in our physical and mental health. Benefits include clearer skin, brighter eyes, reduced body fat, higher energy levels, and a boosted mood. Very excited to share with you!
1. 6 cups of chopped spinach (1 medium bunch)
2. 2 cups of chopped kale (traditional or Tuscan - about 1 small bunch)
3. 1/3 fresh bunch of parsley
4. 1 stalk of celery roughly chopped
5. 1 medium apple cored and coarsely chopped
6. ½ cup blueberries
7. ½ cup of strawberries or raspberries
8. 1 banana
9. ½ lemon freshly squeezed
10. 2 cups filtered water
Wash all ingredients first in cool water, removing any dirt or pesticides (if not organic). Then, add all ingredients to blender pulse until smooth. You can use either Vitamix which fits all ingredients in one batch, or try halving/thirding the recipe to fit in Nutribullets or smaller single serving blenders. The nutritional density diminishes as time goes on, so I try to drink right away or same day.
