Wash and cut vegetables and fruits, put into a food processor and blend. The juice quantity can vary, it depends on the plants´ size. Vary spinach with other leafy greens – lettuce, cabbage or use different sorts. You can add chia seeds or linseed oil. If you have never had a green smoothie start drinking small quantities (about 50 ml). At the begin of the green smoothie era one can suffer from diarrhea – it is because of the smoothie´s detox effect.
Put the washed and cut pieces as well as the liquid into a blender, mix and serve. To your health! You can take as many drinks per day as you want. Ill persons should take up to one liter a day. Those who go to work, can prepare the juice or the smoothie in the morning and take one or two glasses for breakfast. Fill the rest into a bottle, take it to the office and put it there into the fridge. But take care! There are smoothie-thieves everywhere …
The greener the juice or the smoothie the healthier it is. Don´t worry, smoothies taste nice even if they look like poisoned drinks. The basic recipe is 2 cups of leafy greens (spinach, Swiss Chard, lettuce, rocket etc), 2 cups of fruits and 2 cups of water. You can take every fruit you like. Some berries, grapes, peach, apricot or banana pieces added, make every smoothie much more delicious!
I come back to Facebook this afternoon after a time off and find, first of all, these photographs of mouthwatering smoothies (the colours !!!) and recipes. I can imagine the delicious flavour and then … Vitamines galore in your body, a new lightness and a beautiful, transparent, porcelain – like skin.
Need them NOW!!!
