Step your smoothie game up! Make Your Own Ultra Life Green Smoothie With This Unique Recipe

——————–

  • 1 kiwi (peeled)
  • ¾ cup of frozen or fresh strawberries
  • ¼- ½  cup of frozen or fresh pineapple
  • ½ lemon (peeled and seeds removed)
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1-1 ½ cups of water or coconut water (unpasteurized)

Even if you aren’t ready to use leafy greens, you can make any fruit smoothie a green smoothie. Simply add cucumber, celery ribs, parsley, cilantro, basil, mint leaves, spirulina, sweet pea, or broccoli sprouts. As you get comfortable with green smoothies, I suggest working your way up to 2 cups of leafy greens such as spinach (best for a beginner), kale, spring greens, swiss chard or romaine lettuce (kale is my favorite).  Then add 1-2 servings of fruit (I always use at least 2 different fruits) and for a super charged smoothie add up to ¼ cup of raw nuts or seeds, use coconut water  or nut milk for the liquid and add super foods such as goji berries, chia seeds, acai, maca, or raw cacao. Use a high power blender such as Vitamix, Blendtec, or even Nutri-bullet. Enjoy!
