Green Smoothies for Life

I begin every single day by blending a healthy combination of delicious fruits, and wholesome vegetables, and a few added extras for good measure. Drink your way to health with this delightful elixir.

Green smoothies consist of one (1) green, leafy vegetable, two different fruits, water, honey, and a sugar free fruit juice. There is always the option of adding honey, agave nectar, or cinnamon to sweeten it up a bit. Here a few of my favorite combinations:

fresh spinach
mangoes
strawberries
water
sugar free fruit juice
ground flax seeds
agave nectar
************
kale
raspberries
blueberries
water
sugar free fruit juice
wheat germ
honey
**************
kale
mangoes
blackberries
water
SF fruit juice

***************
cilantro
mangoes
strawberries
rhubarb (just because)
water
SF fruit juice
flax seeds
agave nectar
Feel free to tweak these recipes to your own liking. These are just my personal favorites. Be creative with yours! Be sure to switch up the green vegetables every couple of days. Spinach is not to be used every day. Come back to oldskoolnew.blogspot.com and share you favorite smoothie recipes with me!
