My Favorite Green Smoothie

Hi Everyone!

Over the weekend, we had law prom (yes, really!) and while there were no corsages or awkward dates, there was a lot of dressing up and a lot more open bar. As a result, I tricked my poor mid-twenties body into thinking it could handle liquor like a 21 year old sorority girl at UCSB.  MISTAKE.  SO MANY REGRETS.  I spent today getting back on tracking by doing hot yoga (painful but necessary) and drinking more veggies than an African Elephant (world's largest herbivore) consumes in a year.  Not really, but you get the idea.  Here's the recipe for my favorite green-detox-fit girl-fit life forever-i regret my poor weekend choices smoothie.


[Recipe makes about 2-3 smoothies]

2 cups greens (i like spinach or kale with stems removed)

2 cups liquid (coconut water, almond milk, fresh juice or any combo of these)

3 cups mixed frozen fruit (mango/pineapple/berries/peach)

Chopped ginger, Chia seeds, Phytonutrient powder, Protein powder (some or all)

  1. Blend the greens with the liquid first to make sure it's really smooth.  You can use more greens and less fruit if you are trying to minimize sugar consumption.
  2. Add in the fruit.  You can use a combination of frozen and fresh, but be sure to use something frozen or add ice cubes.  If you add ice, you'll need more liquid.
  3. Finally, add in all your "super" goodies at the end and blend until smooth.
  4. Chug until you feel normal and healthy and glowy again.  Repeat.  Force your roommate and/or significant other to try your green concoction also.  Sharing is caring!
