Green Smoothie

By Tia Ohm

It is certainly hard to get a green smoothie tasting, well, not so green. So we tested some different ingredients and of course failed a few times, but finally found a delicious combination that is not too sweet, but not too bitter either. Kale is great for detoxifying your body and is filled with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Combine that with some sweet fruits, nutty accents and a hint of spice, this smoothie is a great kick start to your morning for a lively and productive day. Please enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw kale, stems removed and washed
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1 frozen banana
  • Handful frozen grapes
  • A few sprigs of parsley
  • 1/4 cup raw milk (or yogurt)
  • Handful nuts of your choice (we used raw almonds and cashews)

Note: You can try adding some mint or lemon to brighten it up.

Directions

  1. Blend nuts first, then add the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. If it is too thick, add some water or more grapes.

Makes 1 serving
