GREENS ARE THE FUGGIN’ FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.
Isn’t it amazing to know that with greens, you literally hold the golden ticket to your health? Sounds cheesy, I know, but it’s amazing because the following statement is something that everyone can agree on: Greens are good for you. Blesssssss.
I LOVE my greens, and I eat them every. single. day. I do have a confession, though…I used to hate them. By now, I’ve trained my taste buds enough to do things like eat (and actually crave) raw kale out of a plastic bag, but it took a while to get there. I hands down have smoothies and juicing to thank for that.
Not gonna lie…if you don’t have greens on the reg, chances are, a lot of green smoothie recipes will taste like cardboard. They did for me at first, and I had to try SO MANY combinations of fruits and vegetables to find something that tasted good and gave me all of the nutrients I was looking for. Once I found my go-to combination of fruits and veggies, I felt like getting in my greens was a piece of cake. (Or kale.)
- 1 cup or handful organic spinach
- 1 cup or handful organic kale
- three pitted dates
- 1/2 cup organic blueberries (feel free to sub with any type of berry)
- 1 or 1/2 banana
- 2 small sticks of celery
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp grounded flaxseed
- 1 tsp chia seeds
Add all ingredients to a Vitamix or high-speed blender and blend until it reaches desired consistency. To make clean-up easier, add flax and chia seeds after blending. I often meal prep and make my smoothies the night before, so when I make it, I store it in the fridge overnight and don’t use ice.
In good health,
