Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie
You can create a variety of green smoothies with this basic green smoothie recipe, each with a different flavor! Kale adds calcium and other vitamins and minerals to your smoothie or you can add any other type of dark green leaves. They all have a different set of vitamin, minerals and enzymes to offer, plus lots of fiber! Fiber alone will do wonders for stabilizing your blood sugar and keeping your digestive system in great shape!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups of fruit (you can use peach, mango, pineapple, banana, raspberries, strawberries (using blueberries will no longer qualify it as a green smoothie!)
  • 10 small kale leaves or 2 cups of spring greens or romaine or 1 collard green
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (be careful here - better to have none than to have one with insidious ingredients - I use Sunwarrior)
  • 2 t. chia seeds
  • ½ t. flax seeds
  • goji berry powder, acai powder, (or other superfood powder-be careful with respect to blending flavors)
  • 1 T. magnesium (powdered) (you can add other powdered vitamins)(optional)
  • 1 to 2 cups ice (this will give your consistency of a think shake or an ice cream)
  • 1 cup of water
  • Stevia (to taste)(I use Planetary Herbals)
Instructions
Blend everything together in a blender or Vitamix.
Depending on the season you may need to add more ice. I like my shakes to have a softserve ice cream consistency.
Remember, this shake is mostly water, fruit and veggies, with some added nutrients so you will be full and it will last you for hours but you really need to drink it all so it may take you a while but it will keep you full and hydrated for hours.
