GREEN DRINK

This tastes like a GARDEN IN A GLASS. A fantastic way to start the day or a great mid-afternoon drink to boost your energy! Using a Vitamix rather than a juicer creates a fiber-full drink! Add 2 inches of cold water to the blender to start the process – you need some liquid to liquefy all the veggies.


Serves 4


Add organic ingredients into the Vitamix or other strong blender (not a juicer):

  • 4 large kale leaves or 2 cups baby spinach*

  • 2 large celery stalks

  • 1” fresh ginger, unpeeled

  • 2 cucumbers (remove peel, if not organic)

  • 2 pears, remove stem and prickly butt

  • 1-2 broccoli stems

  • handful of cilantro

  • ½ large lemon (skin and all)

Optional:

Any greens* youhave on hand are fine – Trader Joe’s has a mixture of kale, Swiss chard, and spinach – rinse well.


Experiment with any herbs you enjoy.


Adding carrot, beet, or berries will make the green drink sweeter, but will turn the color brown.


To increase protein:

  • protein powder

  • nuts

  • seeds

  • almond, peanut, or cashew butter

  • Greek yogurt or Kefir (dairy)

  • Carnation NF dry milk powder (dairy)

To increase fiber (the drink is extremely fibrous, so your really shouldn’t need more):

  • psyllium

  • ground flax seed

  • wheat germ

*wheat grass makes the drink bitter
