A Living Green Smoothie
64 ounces/2-4 servings
1 ½ -2 cups very cold, filtered water or coconut water
6 cups torn spinach
5 cups romaine lettuce, torn or chopped
1 peeled cucumber-chunked
1 apple, cored and chopped
1 pear, cored and chopped
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
Optional: ½ cup cilantro and or parsley, 1 tsp fresh ginger and a few ice cubes
Blend water, spinach, and romaine on low speed until smooth. Gradually move to a higher speed and add the herbs, cucumber, pear, and apple. Add banana and lemon juice last.
Start out consuming 16 ounces then work up to 24 ounces. This drink will keep fresh in a covered glass jar for 2 days and can also be frozen to last longer to make prep time easier and to fit your schedule. All ingredients should be organic.
I recommend using a powerful blender-the Vitamix, or Magic Bullet which is much less expensive than the Vitamix and does a pretty good job..
