I recently started having cravings for healthy food...green smoothies and grapefruit. I have no idea where this came from but I'm not complaining. I've been eating a grapefruit daily for about two weeks now. I'll make a green smoothie at least every other day.
I wanted to quickly share with you my favorite green smoothie recipe. I'm not a fan of smoothies being meal replacements but THIS smoothie definitely curbs my appetite and helps to keep my inners regular. Here goes:
2 1/2 handfuls of baby kale/baby spinach mix
1 banana (I freeze my bananas and use them when needed - don't forget to peel before freezing.
4 ice cubes (This is optional. I like my smoothies very chilled).
Ground flax seeds and ground chia seeds (add according to your personal preference - about 2 tablespoons of each is good)
2 tablespoons of RAW honey. The REAL raw honey not the Honeybee brand. It should say "raw honey on the packaging.
1 cup of almond mild
3 small pieces of ginger cut from the ginger root.
2 dashes of spirulina powder
Blend it all together (I use a Blendtec blender). Blend until it has a smooth consistency. II typically let mine sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes so it can get really cold. I pour in a 20 oz mason jar - yummy!
