Green Smoothie

Part of taking care of our bodies is getting enough fruits and vegetables.  This delicious smoothie is one way that the yoUnlimited team likes to start their day (and finish it too).  It’s definitely worth it to get up a little earlier and get this whirling in your blender or juicer.  This is such a great time of year for oranges and grapefruits and use organic produce whenever possible!

Ingredients:

  • 2 grapefruits
  • 3 large kale leaves (stems removed) or a big handful of spinach
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1/2 english cucumber
  • 2 apples (cored and cut into pieces)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup water

 

Juice

Method 1: BEST METHOD:  Cut the peel off the grapefruit and lemon.  Process all, except the water through your juicer.  Our favourite reasonably priced home juicer is the Breville Juice Fountain Plus.   Add the water to the juice.

Method 2: Juice the grapefruit and lemon on a citrus juicer and process the juice and remainder of ingredients (including water) in your blender.

Green Smoothie

In your blender container, put one cup of the juice above (put the rest into a canning jar with a tight fitting lid and put in the fridge to enjoy later in the day).

Add:

2 scoops of your favourite vanilla protein powder
1 cup of frozen pineapple
1 banana
1 tbsp chia seeds (or 1 tbsp chia oil)

and blend til mixed and so yummy!   Enjoy!
