Here is the green smoothie recipe you've been asking for... What do I put in my green smoothies? Well, truth be told, I like 'em GREEN;) I have worked hard to create a recipe that is refreshingly cleansing and tasty. My green smoothie recipe is a hit with everyone who tries it. It is VERY low glycemic. Super safe and healthy for diabetics and will keep your body energized and clean! I drink two 3 cup servings per day of the following:
1/2 pound of greens of choice, spinach, Swiss chard, collards, romaine, kale, dandelion greens, etc...
3 stalks celery
1 thumb size piece of ginger
1/2 lemon, yellow skin peeled off
handful of parsley or cilantro
1 piece of fruit of choice, or a cup of berries. I like apples, peaches, pears, banana, etc... The lower the sugar content, the faster you'll shed pounds if that is your goal.
4 cups water
Blend all ingredients together. (I use a Blendtec blender with Wildside pitcher to do the job. It is the BEST kitchen appliance EVER!!) Enjoy! You may add stevia to taste. I also like to add a raw protein powder such as hemp, sprouted brown rice, pumpkin seed, pea, etc...
E-mail me if you buy a blender from the above link so I can get you a $30 rebate!!
I also add a TBS of bee pollen. This is my post-workout drink of choice!
To chill it quickly, place in the freezer for 1 hour. If you're busy like me, set the timer to remind yourself to take it back out or you'll have a green smoothie popsicle! Another quick chill option on the road is to place it in a container filled with water and ice cubes. I do this if I have to leave the house right away. My insulated lunch bag has a removable, hard plastic liner that does the job well. I like to store my smoothies in jars that hold three cups of smoothie. This amount holds me for about 3 hours. Mmmmmm, delish...!!
