The Ultimate Detox Green Smoothie

Does the concept of a green smoothie need an introduction?  No.

Drink your greens = feel healthy.

We have done the leg work for you to make sure your smoothie tastes more like a Pina Colada instead of cold grass soup.  You're welcome.

So when putting together your smoothie, you want to remember the '1 veggie to 1 fruit' rule.  This will make sure that the nutrition you get from the veggies outweighs the sugar content of the fruit.  Although it's good sugar, you still need to watch how much you eat.  

When picking your veggies, we like to go for ones that can be easily camouflaged by delicious berry goodness:

- Spinach (and most types of lettuce, Kale is great too but can be difficult to blend)

- Cucumber

- Celery

- Mint

You can pick pretty much any fruit, we love:

- Frozen berries

- Mango

- Peach

- Bananas (great for post workout)

- Lime

- Pineapple

Then to complete your smoothie you need to pick your liquid:

- Coconut water (unsweetened, straight up is best)

- Almond milk

- Water

So without further delay, we present:

Ultimate Detox Green Smoothie Recipe

1 handful of spinach

1/2 cucumber

1 frozen banana

1 handful of frozen berries

Almond milk

Place all of the ingredients in a blender with a few cubes of ice.  Pour around 1-2 cups of almond milk in (depending on how thick you like it) and blend.

For some optional extras you can try adding chia seeds, vegan protein powder, cocoa powder, maca powder and/or nut butter.

Freeze your ingredients in a zip lock bag the night before to make your morning ritual a breeze.  Enjoy!
