Drink 16-32 oz every morning for breakfast, if you are still hungry after the smoothie have half of an avocado or piece of fruit. You’ll enjoy the energy boost!
You can also use the same ratios for ‘Glowing Green Juice’ minus the Banana. Cheers to fat burning, weight loss, vitamins and minerals, and glowing from the inside out.
Glowing Green Smoothie
12-16 oz Filtered Water
1 head of Romaine Lettuce
1 cup Spinach
3 Celery Sticks
1/2 cucumber (optional)
1 Green Apple (cored)
1 pear (ripe)
1 banana (riper the better)
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
(Optional: add head of parsley or cilantro)
Prepare all the veggies by washing and chopping them before placing them into the blender in the order they are written. This is very important as the veggies take longer to break down the fruit. I like to add the romaine and spinach and blend a bit before adding the remaining veggies and blending a bit again. You can generally add the fruit all at once.
If you don’t have enough room in your blender do not push it… pour some into a container and blend that before adding the rest of it. You’ll have a mess otherwise.
If you have a Blendtec press the ‘whole juice’ or ‘soup’ button.
If you have a Vitamix, select ‘Variable, speed 1’. Turn on and quickly increase speed to 10. Blend for 1 1/2 minutes until very smooth. Serve cold, enjoy.
