- Handful (or two) of Spinach, or Kale
- Handful of Parsley
- Small handful of Mint
- 1/2 Cucumber, peeled and chopped
- 1 cube of Ginger, peeled
- Juice from 1/2 of a Lemon
- 1/2 cup Coconut Water
- Handful of Ice
- (optional) 1/2 of an Apple or a 1/2 cup of Pineapple
- (optional) an amino acid powder supplement like BCAA Big 6, or a pea protein powder; both available from my partner NOW Foods.
Start off with a little bit of spinach. If you don’t like spinach you can always substitute kale. Put a good handful in there. I love spinach, so I usually put in a little more.
Add in a handful of parsley, again you can do more or less according to your taste. Did you know parsley is really good for your skin!?
Next, add mint – a little handful.
Now add a half of a cucumber, peeled and chopped.
Add a little cube of ginger. It is a little spicy so if this is your first time trying ginger go ahead and try half of what we use in the video. Then, if you like the taste go ahead and add the other half. I love ginger, it’s nice and spicy!
Next, use the juice from 1/2 lemon and about 1/2 a cup of coconut water which is a great way to rehydrate after sleeping all night, and helps you start your day awake and alert.
Now, a handful of ice.
Time to blend and get ready to drink! (Make sure your lid is on nice and tight.) Blend until smooth. Now give it a taste!
Green smoothies are a yummy and awesome way to incorporate more veggies and start our day healthy. Enjoy 😋
