Check out my favorite green smoothie recipe!
Green smoothies are a great way to start the day with a nutritional blast, by adding important minerals, vitamins, healthy omega three fats, fiber, protein and enzymes to your diet that are hydrating and easy to digest. The best green smoothies are simple, and there are lots of options so get creative! Basically, you want to have a ratio of about 50% fruits and 50% vegetables (greens are best) and your smoothie will always be delicious. If not sweet enough, add some liquid stevia (green stevia, not white!). You'll hardly taste the vegetables, unless you want to!
• 1 bunch green leafy vegetable of choice (50% of total)
• Fruit of choice (50% of total)
• 1-2 Bananas or 1 avocado to emulsify (make creamy)
• ginger, lemon, parsley (fresh herbs) and/or stevia to taste
May also add:
Superfood green powder (such as Garden of Life)
Cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices
Unsweetened almond or rice milk
Nuts, nut butters, seeds, oats, flax seeds or omega 3 supplement
Put all ingredients in your blender.
Add clean water to cover all ingredients.
