My Daily Greens
Happy Saturday! Who's ready for the weekend?!
Today is your last reminder about the supplement sale going on this weekend at Whole Foods Market! 25% off ALL of your favorite superfoods and supplements! If you don't know what you should be stocking up on, let me know and I'll send you some tips ;)
As I mentioned yesterday, I am posting several of my favorite smoothie recipes in honor of this sale! So...today is 3/3, and I have saved my absolute favorite for last! This may not compare to the creaminess and dessert like feeling of the mint chip, but this one is my life force. I am ALL about getting my greens in, and this smoothie makes it so so easy! I notice a huge difference in my energy, skin, immunity, and digestion when I drink this smoothie compared to when I don't. So, give it a go! If you don't like greens, you can always add extra fruit!
1 Cup Almond Milk or Coconut Water
1/4 Cucumber (about 1/4 cup)
2 Celery Stalks
2 Cups Spinach and/or Kale
1 Cup Frozen Mango (feel free to sub for pineapple)
1/2 Teaspoon Spirulina Powder
1-inch Ginger Root
1/2 Frozen Banana (optional for extra sweetness)
Optional Superfood Add-ins: 1T Flax Seeds, 1T Hemp Seeds, 1T Chia Seeds, and/or 1T Bee Pollen
A Note on Spirulina:
Spirulina is a blue green algae, and is one of the most talked about superfoods. It is known for many things... but here are a few.
High in Protein, Iron, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K.
Detoxes Heavy Metals
Spirulina has a strong taste, but it doesn't take much to get the full benefit. So even 1/2 teaspoon a day will do a lot of good!
Add all of your ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth! Feel free to add more liquid or fruit if needed.
Enjoy this smoothie for any meal or snack - but I am all about starting my day off right with a green smoothie!
