All Green Smoothie

All Green Smoothie

Although I know the green color can be a little scary, endless blessings come from this power drink.  It’s enjoyable and sweet even though you’re eating tons of veggies, fiber, several vitamins and nutrients, and a nice energy boost for the day. My husband was hesitant when checking out the green color.  He slowly took a sip, looked surprised, and said, “this is really good, babe!” He was hesitant no more and the smoothie was history.     There are lots a fresh veggies and fruits in this smoothie.  PLEASE, I’m seriously begging, wash (not rinse with water) all of them.  You completely void all the good if you’re putting in all those chemicals, dirt, pesticides, and waxes they accrue before coming home with you.  Don’t know how to wash your vegetables or why it’s important?  Check out this post on why you should wash your vegetables.  You can visible see the difference in the images I share.   If you feel this smoothie is too sweet or tart, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder or a banana. Both or one of these will add a subtle sweetness.  Sit back, smile, and enjoy your smoothie while your stomach and body thank you for all the nutritional goodness.

Getting Green Smoothie

If you need baby steps before jumping on-board the ‘green’ train, this smoothie is for you.  It’s very similar to my scrumptious All Green Smoothie, but with fewer green items that hopefully freak you out less. Have you read my post on making your own healthy smoothie?  It lists 4 musts of smoothie making.  One essential element is having a quality blender.  Everything will be chunky and you will not be able to get a smooth consistency without an awesome blender.  I’ve heard good things about the Ninja and BlendTec, but I’m a Vitamix lover myself.  Here’s why you should buy a Vitamix. Print Getting Green Smoothie Ingredients 1 cup water or vanilla almond milk 1 cup green grapes 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks 1 medium banana peeled 2 cups fresh spinach 1/2 cup chopped cucumber 1 cup ice or frozen banana Instructions Place all ingredients in Vitamix blender.
