Recipe- Green Smoothies

Capture

 

I’ve really been into experimenting with green smoothies lately, it’s a great way to get a healthy dose of calcium, Iron and a healthy dose of veggie power!

These recipes below are ones that I made myself (though I am sure other people have similar ones) and they are suited to my tastes, you can use really any juice that you want, you only use a little depending on how watery you want it. I like to use orange because it takes away from some of the bitterness of the kale. If you need to sweeten it, just add a banana or even lowfat vanilla yogurt,agave or a bit of raw honey. Never table sugar!

This will help rid your system of toxins and alkalizes your system.

1/2 cucumber unpeeled

1 Rib of Celery

1 Bunch of Kale (any kind will do, I grow dinosaur Kale)

1 good handful of parsley

4 mint leaves

4 spearmint leaves

1/2 cup of Orange Juice ( 1 Cup if you like it less thick)

Directions:

Pulverize it to an oblivion in the blender. And drink asap.

This one tends to be very earthy tasting ( smells like fresh cut grass) and not real sweet,

if you need to sweeten it add a banana 🙂
