Monday Meal Prep – Green Smoothie Time
Need a cool off for summer? Sometimes it’s just too hot for a meal, or maybe you need a hearty snack between meals, and this smoothie is just right!
This is a smoothie that is super healthy but doesn’t taste overpoweringly “green”! This recipe makes an entire blender full, so drink one now and have one in the fridge for tomorrow’s smoothie (just add a few ice cubes and re blend).
Ingredients (64 ounces / 2-4 servings)
1 ½- 2 cups very cold, filtered water
6 cups spinach, chopped
5 cups organic romaine lettuce, chopped
2 stalks of organic celery
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, cored and chopped
1 organic banana
1–2 Tbs. fresh organic lemon juice
About 6 ice cubes (the extra coldness can help newbies with the taste)
1/2 cup of organic cilantro
1/2 cup of organic parsley
Add water, spinach and chopped romaine to the blender. Starting the blender on a low speed; mix until smooth.
Gradually move to higher speeds and add the herbs, celery, pear, and apple. Add the banana and lemon juice last.
*For 1 serving, cut out one of the fruits and the celery.
