2 Green Smoothies

I went on a juice fast about a month ago for five very, very long days.  Now, I wasn’t a huge fan of not chewing any of my foods, but I do love smoothies regularly.  Here are a few recipes I came away from Sip with for Green Smoothies.

 Good Morning Green Smoothies

  • 10-16 oz cold filtered water
  • 2 cups spinach (If you are new to green smoothies start with spinach.  In time, switch to 1/2 spinach 1/2 kale, and then try all kale.)
  • 1-2 unpeeled apples
  • 1 banana
  • 2 stalks celery
  • small handful of parsley  (parsley can over power the smoothie, add more or less depending on your taste for the plant!)
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 1/2 grapefruit
(use a whole orange if grapefruit is not an option due to certain medication interactions)
blend in high speed blender with a few ice cubes
*start with 10 oz of water and add more as needed*
  • 10-16 oz cold filtered water
  • 2 cups spinach and kale mixed (one or the other is fine too)
  • small handful parsley
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cucumber
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple
  • 1 banana
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 1 T lemon juice
blend with ice
Enjoy!

  1. Do you have any green smoothie ideas without fruit? I know that sounds weird but I can no longer enjoy ANY fruit, sad, I know. Do you ever add protein?
