Here’s a great Green Smoothie “starter”. Make modifications to fit your dietary needs. Blending the greens in a high powered blender works best to minimize any chunks. I use my Blendtec Total Blender.
Add extra water to thin out smoothie if it is too thick for your taste. Also, if just starting with green smoothies, start with mix of 50/50 greens to fruit. Gradually decrease amount of fruit and increase greens.
Step 1: Blend the following for about 60 seconds until smooth
- Put 2 Cups Filtered Water into BlendTec Total Blender
- Small Amount Stevia
- Juice of 1/4 Whole Lemon
- Add 2 cups combo of Organic Spinach/Kale (or any other greens like chard, collard, purple kale)
Step 2: Add the following to blender and blend again
- 1 Banana
- 1 Small organic apple
- 1 Cup organic frozen berries (masks the color)*
- 2 Tbs chia seeds
- Couple ice cubes
*You can substitute any fruit in.*
