First of all, don’t judge a smoothie by it’s name! This is REALLY good! I have been eating so bad for the last month that I’ve decided to eat clean for the next 5 days. To me, this means eating only what God made in it’s purest form. Except for coffee. I don’t have the desire to deal with the withdrawal headaches so I will still drink my morning cup but without cream and sugar. Yes, I’m even giving up wine. I’m trying not to panic. It’s only 5 days!!!!
Following is one of my favorite healthy smoothies:
Blend in blender
- 1 stalk of Kale – wash it really good and take the leaves off of the stem
- 1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup of pineapple juice
- 1 section (approx. 3″) of a seedless cucumber
- 1/4 section of avocado
- splash of lemon juice
You may need to add in a little water if it gets too thick.
Or if you prefer it to be really cold, you can add in some crushed ice instead.
These measurements are general guidelines. Feel free to tweak it to your own liking!
