my go-to green

Some people have a hard time eating the same thing every day – I’m not one of those people.  5 out of 7 days each week my green smoothie is the exact same.  It’s simple, consistent, and delicious.  But, it’s Not sweet; after drinking these for years, my green tolerance is high.  For newbies, consider changing the initial 1C water to 1/2C water and 1/2C pomegranate or acai juice (high in antioxidants) to start, or just add more berries.  Ingredients below are in the order that I add them.

Go-To Green
  • 1C Water
  • ¼ - ½ Cucumber, cut into roughly ½” pieces
  • Small handful of parsley (fresh from my pot outside!)
  • Small handful of mint (fresh from my pot outside!)
  • Kale (destemmed) loosely to top of blender
  • BLEND – I use the Smoothie cycle on my Blend-Tec and then stop it halfway through
  • Spinach loosely to top of blender
  • ½ - 1C frozen blueberries
  • 0-1C additional Water (optional, depending on desired consistency)
  • BLEND – full run of the Smoothie cycle on my Blend-Tec
