I’ve been making green smoothies for a while now, and this is it. This is the one I drink every day, and has the most amount of awesomeness, and best of all, it tastes very nice too!
(Yields: 2 cups, Serving: , Prep time: mins, Cook time: mins)
- 3-5 large stalks swiss chard
- 1-2 cups baby spinach
- 4 broccoli florets
- 2 cups kale
- 1/3 large cucumber
- 6-8 baby carrots
- 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes (or 1/2 Roma tomato)
- 1/2 green apple
- 1/2 lemon (rind included)
- 1/2 orange (rind included)
- 1/2 cup green grapes (red is fine too)
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 2 strawberries
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
Other fruits and veggies I like to add: green/red cabbage, endives, lettuce (especially ones with dark leaves) and pineapples.
Prepare the ingredients:
(Wash them with fruit and vegetable wash if possible, and slice the big ones in half or quarters.)
I recommend having one of the most awesome blenders ever, Vitamix to do the blending.
Either add everything in at once and use the food tamper to press down, or add a little each time and blend until it’s all smooth.
Everything is now nice and smooth.
Result: A wonderful green coloured smoothie that will do you the world of wonders.
