Go Green: Smoothie & Juice Du Jour

With the new year approaching, many are thinking about self improvement. One of the best ways I can think of to accomplish health improvement is to incorporate more greens into one's diet. That doesn't sound fun at first, but it totally is. Check this out: Green Smoothie & Green Juice du jour. It will make your cells dance. Wahoo!

My green smoothie of the day:
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Half cucumber
  • 1 peeled lemon
  • 1 ripe banana
  • Big handful of spinach
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple

Add all ingredients to your Vita-Mix blender and power it up.

Green juice of the week:
  • 1 head of organic celery
  • 2 organic granny smith apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch organic lacinto kale
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger

Run all ingredients through a masticating juicer such as the Champion or Green Star. This makes about 4 cups of juice. Drink it up!

Make it your green smoothie and green juice of the year!
