Detoxifying Green Smoothie Recipe - OMS Compliant
My go-to green smoothie recipe at the moment - refreshing, delicious and not too "healthy" tasting. It's also been getting all the ticks of approval by my friends and family lately too. I try to get greens in my diet everyday but when I don't have time or I can't stomach a salad I make one of these and it works a treat! Plus it has lots of other healing whole-foods in it to promote detoxification and healing. Sometimes I throw a big handful of baby spinach leaves in as well.
2-3 big kale leaves, hold the stem and pull the leaves off, discard the stem and add leaves to your blender
Handful baby spinach leaves (optional)
1/2 a peeled lemon, pips removed
1 small knob fresh ginger, thumb nail size
A few sprigs of fresh mint, I throw in stems and all
Half a small fresh cucumber, about 5-6 cm long
1 big handful of frozen mango cubes. Mango makes it sweet so don't skimp
1 fresh or frozen banana, diced. Make sure banana's are spotty before going in the freezer, this makes for sweeter, tastier smoothies.
About 1.5 cups coconut water
Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender, (I use a Nutri-Bullet 900W which is super powerful), blend till smooth.
