This is one of my favorites. With all the greens, you wouldn’t think it is very sweet, but it is!
Juicing is an easy way to get all your greens in daily. But with juicing, you take the fiber away. This is good in that you are putting those nutrients on a fast track to your blood stream so they can get to work right away. But everyone needs fiber to flush the system from the toxins. So this juice and smoothie combo is the best of both worlds. By taking the juice and blending it with avocado and banana you create a fiber-rich drink that is also smooth and creamy. Plus, thanks to the avocado, you are getting healthy fats, as well.
This juice is rich in potassium, vitamin C, and iron.
The nutrients in this smoothie have the power to cleanse the intestines, boost your immune system, reduce your blood pressure, and rebuild your red blood cells.
And I promise you that it tastes so good you’ll suck it down so fast you’ll wish you made more….so maybe make it a double! 😉
2 celery stalk
1 inch cucumber (or zucchini)
1 cup spinach
1 cup dinosaur kale
1 whole swiss chard leaf (stem and all)
1 green apple
Juice (from above)
1/2 cup pure aloe (I scoop mine right out of the aloe leaf)
- Juice pineapple, celery, cucumber, spinach, kale, chard, and apple.
- Put juice in a blender and blend it with avocado, aloe, and banana.
** Optional…occasionally when I am feeling rather hungry I’ll add a 1/2 cup of oatmeal and 3 tbsp of ground flax to the blender.
