I often make green smoothies in the morning and about one day each week, I have a quart of smoothie for breakfast and a quart for lunch instead of regular meals. It fills me up, gives me important micronutrients and calories I need to keep going. Plus, it helps keep my appetite and weight in check when I need a reset. I seem to go in phases when I crave them all the time and then won’t make one for a whole week. I figure my body knows when I need the cleanse.
Filling up my Vitamix makes 2 quarts and a 6 oz serving, perfect for a toddler. If she’s not up for it right away, it makes wonderful freezer pops too. Get on the green smoothie train if you haven’t already. The difference a good dose of chlorophyll will do for your day is incredible.
Today’s recipe: 4 cups spinach, 1/2 pineapple, 2 cups water, 2 frozen bananas, handful strawberries.
