Delicious Green Smoothie


I recently decided to start making my own smoothies for an energy/health boost after the gym or work or to kickstart my day. Juicing has so many health benefits and all individual ingredients have so many health properties themselves so add them all together and you end up with a magic potion for health! Well thats how I'm trying to sell it, but i really do feel much better for drinking them. Green smoothies tend to be best as they are alkalizing to the body and very nutrient rich, which in turn helps your body to work at its best and maintian health. I find them very filling so that equal less snacking, which can only be a good thing!


I am going to start posting different recipes for smoothies to help inspire. One thing though, NEVER be put off by the colour of a smoothie. Looks are most definitely deceiving! I am led to believe the worse it looks, the better it tend s to be for you. Luckily mine tastes fantastic and looks good too ;) Its the only way I'll ever be able to incorporate spinach or kale or any green leaves into my diet as I really cant stand them.

This Smoothie is really healing and cleansing and best of all you dont taste any of the greens :)

Ingredients

Generous handfull of spinach   * The more greens the better, you can always even out the taste with fruit!*
Generous handfull of kale 
7 or 8 small chunks pineapple
2 clemintines (peeled)
Fresh ginger (finely chopped) * I tend to add a small amount as it can be very overpowering*
Juice of a fresh lemon
Juice of a fresh Lime
Coconut water or spring water ( To thin down Mixture)
A Few ice cubes 

NOW BLEND!

Make sure It is completely smooth and there are no bits. I tend to put mine in the fridge for a wee while just to cool down further as i like it chilled. It is much more pleasant to drink!
