Super Green Smoothie
I start my day with some version of this awesome super green smoothie every day. My smoothie can carry me for hours, sometimes as many as 9 before I need to eat or have a green juice.
1 lb oranges, grapes, strawberries or other moist fruit
½ lb figs, apples, blueberries or other fruit
1 T flax or soaked chia seed (optional)
½ bunch flat leaf parsley, cilantro or other herb
1 bunch kale, collards, bok choy, spinach or romaine
1 to 2 ripe bananas
1 T Ormus Greens (optional)
Add the first 5 ingredients and blend until smooth, then add the rest and bend just until thoroughly mixed. Try to keep your blending time under I minute to keep the chance of oxidation of nutrients low.
You may need some water to thin this out a bit depending on which fruits and vegetables you use. Some have higher water content than others. I like to have my super green smoothie on the thick side as it seems more satisfying in the long term.
All these ingredients are approximates and can be changed or altered as you experiment with your favorite fruits and veggies. I believe variety is good for health in terms of both fruit and vegetables, and that by eating primarily with the seasons you can easily accomplish this.
Any blender can be used to make your super green smoothie, however it’s much easier with a powerful blender like the Vitamix or Blendtec. These blenders have powerful motors with large carafes and will make short work of smoothie preparation and lessen the chance of oxidation. I had a Vitamix for 9 years when I sold it and it was still going strong. I currently use the Blendtec with the 3 qt carafe and I think it’s awesome.
