Almost everyday I make this smoothie. It’s so light and refreshing.
a cup of coconut water (chilled)
about half a blender of kale or kale and spinach
a handful of frozen pineapple chunks
a handful of frozen mango chunks
a dash of cayanne
I love to put grapes in my green smoothies. Grapes somehow seem to neutralize just about any bitter/vegetable taste that green smoothies tend to come with. Of course I always throw in some frozen berries too.
ginger, chia seeds, flak seeds, OJ, bananas, strawberries or blueberries, mint leaves, kale and apple
2 C fresh spinach, washed
1 banana —frozen in pieces
1 tbsp Apple juice concentrate
2 tsp Carlson’s Lemon flavored fish oil
Blend on smoothie. Then add
1 scoop Rainbow light vanilla protein energizer.
Pulse 3 or 4 times.
Sometimes I add a slice of lemon or ginger
Got this one from a neurosurgeon.
I was hoping for a list of vegetable/fruits that can be juiced whole (skins and all) versus the ones that you definitely have to process. Can anyone point me to such a list?
