Ingredients to Morning Smoothie

Today I made a delicious Green Smootie. I make them daily and encourage you to do the same. Why? Because they are the very best way to get those veggies in you and working all the magic that they can do for your body.

Personally I do not like Kale very much, but it is so full of calcium and other dynamic photo chemicals. So, I blend it - or puree it. I add celery, cilantro, parsley, cucumber and a local meyer lemon. Sometimes I add some ginger and other veggies like beets and carrots.

Now this may sound a little tart to you, but I like it this way. If you want it to be a little sweeter, then add a juicy apply or pear (pear tastes awesome).

I make an entire blender - mine is a Vita Mix - full and then store it to have for the next day. To store, pour in glass jars and add a few drops of hydrogen peroxide to help preserve it.

Enjoy at least 4-6 ounces two times a day. The next day you will have it all made and then you only have to make it every other day. Now think about it would you eat this many vegetables within a day or two. Probably not, so go for it. It is so simple, so refreshing and a great way to get your 5 a day!!!
