Green smoothies are a great tasting alternative to get in all your daily vitamins and key nutrients. If taken in the morning they provide a great source of energy and keep you feeling full longer. If you prefer to drink them in the evening they are a great way to end the day with a meal that won’t be too heavy and keep your metabolism working all night. If you live a busy lifestyle, then this recipe is perfect for you. It’s super easy to make and involves little to no prep time (AND if you own a Vitamix – you know how easy clean up is :))
Feel free to mix up this recipe to incorporate your favorite greens. Remember, keeping a variety of deep greens is key to getting all the important nutrients. You can also switch up the fruit – fruits that I find go well with green smoothies are: apples, limes, lemons, and pears.
You will need:
- 1 leaf rainbow chard (substitute with any green you like, for example: Kale)
- handful of spinach
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 pear
- 1 small handful of parsley
- 1/4 th large cucumber
- Add all your ingredients to the blender
- Add about 1 cup of water and a few ice cubes
- Blend and Enjoy!
