Green Smoothie Recipe

By Thursday, June 18, 2015 , , , , , , , , ,

 

Do you eat your green and how good are you at doing so? When it comes to eating greens I am really really bad at doing so. I know all about the health benefits and nutrients green leafy vegetables are packed with but still somehow I don’t eat them so often. But as I am getting older, I am realising that I have to make some changes in my eating habits so that I stay healthy and fit. I am not changing my complete diet but planning to incorporate more greens into it and keeping a very realistic approach towards it. I have been experimenting with recipes for a while now and figuring out what I like and what I don’t like. I have to admit it is not that easy. Some were okay but some where out right disastrous. I am still in the trying out and experimenting phase of things. But amidst all this I have found that the easiest and quickest way of including greens in your diet is through smoothies. You don’t have to think much just through in whatever greens and fruits you have and you are done. But still I am sharing the recipe that I usually follow but there is no hard and fast rule. You can switch up the fruits or greens according to your liking but keep the proportions same.


Recipe:

  • 2 cups of water( you can substitute with coconut water)
  • 2 cups spinach
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste optional
  • Mint to garnish optional 
Blend your greens first so they are no chunks. Add in everything else and blend them together until smooth.

For me this is easiest way of having greens. Ideally you should drink it daily but I am still working on it but I do it every other day. I am quite happy that I have found a way to include greens in my diet and I planning to stick to it.

  4. Tris is a great way to eat healthy!! I should get a blender to start with because mine is too old and has been faulty. The only problem I see is that I will end up doing this for the whole family and I will need a HUGE blender LOL!!

  5. @Natalia: It is and I feel great when I have this. If you can get your whole family on board with this that's great because my better half runs in other direction when he sees this :))
