This green smoothie is just the thing you need when you’re looking for a VERY healthy and refreshing snack!
I love this drink, I just feel so healthy when I drink it… It’s pleasantly sweet despite it’s vibrant green color. It’s perfect for any cleanse or detox too.
Here’s the recipe and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
But, first things first! Let me tell you how much I LOVE spinach nuggets!! Spinach nuggets are found in the frozen section at your local grocery store. They are individual little balls of freshly frozen spinach. They are absolutely fantastic!! I throw a couple in all my smoothies because they add great color and nutrients (iron being one of them!) without sacrificing flavor. When blended to perfection these spinach balls are practically tasteless!
-1/2 cup Coconut Water
-1 tbsp Ground Flax Seed
-1 cup Fresh Spinach
-1 cup Chopped Romain
-2-inch slice of Cucumber
-2 Celery Stalks washed, trimmed and chopped
-1 Carrot peeled or scrubbed and chopped
-Squeeze of Lemon Juice
-Pinch of each ground Ginger, Turmeric (if you have ginger or turmeric fresh, use a small amount of it instead!) and Cayenne Pepper
-1/2 Frozen Banana
-OPTIONAL: a tbsp of parsley (although parsley is great for you, it has a distinctive taste…So try it and see what you think!) AND/OR 1 tsp Fish Oil (I use Nutrasea) AND/OR 1/4 tsp Spirulina
-For extra protein, you can always add a half scoop of natural or naturally flavoured protein powder, delicious and nutritious, especially after a workout!
* Buy organic produce when you can!
Direction: Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and uniform, the drink becomes almost slushy-like depending on how long you blend it for.
Be sure to purchase a good quality blender for optimal results, if you check out my favorites section, I gave a review on my favorite blender of all times!
I hope you like it!
