Google green smoothie and you will find multiple recipes for this green concoction. Green smoothies are a blend of fruits and vegetables with a heavy dose of green leafy vegetables usually kale or Swiss chard.
My favorite recipe:
- 1 pear
- 1 cucumber
- 1/8 of a fresh pineapple
- 2 cups of raw kale
Be creative with your fruit and throw in your favorites like grapes or strawberries. You need a heavy blender (Vitamix) to pulverize this into a drink. This recipe makes 4 servings and is about 50 calories per serving.
Is it magical, no, but it is a great way to get a serving of greens. It is also easy to take on the go. I have one in my lunch box right now. If you have a strong blender, give them a try.
