Glow Green Smoothie

Blending helps make greens’ full spectrum of nutrition readily available to the body. Nutrients are encased inside plant cells and getting their benefits requires these cells’ walls to be ruptured. Greens need to be worked down to a creamy consistency, but most people simply don’t chew that much! Blending addresses this problem, helping your body absorb the maximum amount of nutrition from your greens.

Glow Green Smoothie Recipe

2 cups water
1/2 head spinach
1 head romaine or kale
1/2 organic lemon, with peel
4 sticks celery
1 banana
1 pear
1 apple
fresh mint

In a blender (BlendTec is my favorite!) mix 2 cups water, spinach and romaine. Add lemon, peel and all, and blend till smooth. Then add all other ingredients and blend again. Cover and refrigerate any left overs and use within 2 days.

  1. How do I measure greens when I buy them in a bag? How much equals a "head"
