Green Smoothie
Sometimes it can be hard to get all of your vegetables in during the day. That’s why making a veggie-rich green smoothie for breakfast is a great way of packing in extra nutrients. Here’s a recipe for one we like that is designed to give you more energy and stamina and support healthy skin, too!
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 handfuls (approx. 2 cups) kale or power greens mix
  • 2 handfuls (approx. 2 cups) baby spinach
  • 2 cups pure apple juice
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed (for extra benefits, use the juice from an entire lemon)
  • 1 banana
  • Ice
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated (optional)
DIRECTIONS
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Drink right away as the foam will rise to the top, which means that you have lots of good fiber to drink.
Tips: Using a frozen banana will allow you to use less ice. For added nutritional benefits, swap water with apple juice and add one whole apple, or swap out 1 cup of apple juice for 1 cup of water and add 1/2 an apple.
