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
According to research and Navitas’ website, “Cacao has been consumed for its invigorating and healthy properties for generations in Mexican, Central and South American cultures. Cacao powder is one of the richest sources of immune-boosting antioxidants found in nature. It also provides important minerals including magnesium and iron. Separated from the oily cacao butter, cacao powder is also a concentrated form of healthy dietary fiber. All raw cacao products contain the unique alkaloid chemicals theobromine, phenylethylamine and anandamine that help you feel HAPPY.”
Not only is it healthy, but it is a tasty addition to any smoothie!
