I try to always keep a stock of spinach, romaine or kale in the fridge and of course apples or pears. My family and I are anticipating summer with its promise of fruit and greens bounty. Not to mention the way that I feel in the mood for a cold, refreshing smoothie much more so when it's warm outside than when I am trying to bundle up and keep warm. Just give me a hot cup of tea or coffee!!
Here is my go to green smoothie recipe. You really cannot go wrong on these...just don't try cabbage. lol
8 to 12 oz of water
apple or pear
2 GOOD handfuls of spinach
1 wedge of lemon
1/2 an orange (if I have one on hand)
5 ice cubes
5 ice cubes
That is a common smoothie in my home but I have to switch it up or the citrus begins to irritate my mouth. Some of these variations may be blueberries and/or mango, strawberries, etc. To help me get a good foundation for making green smoothies I invested in the Green Smoothie Revolution: The Radical Leap Toward Natural Health by Victoria Boutenko. There are several recipes, which seems to use almost every green, leafy variety.
What about you? What is your "go-to"smoothie or have you tried them yet?
