Smoothie is an integral part of my everyday diet. My morning starts with the whirl of my favorite blender that results in a drink that I carry around all morning, slowly sipping and enjoying. Smoothies are your best friend if you are trying to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet. It is the simplest change you can make to start a healthy lifestyle.
I change my smoothie recipe depending on what is available at hand but this is my go-to recipe for the days I don’t want to experiment.
This smoothie will help kick-start your busy day with a burst of energy!
2 cups Spinach or Kale
½ cup water, ½ cup ice
1.5 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (I get it from my local grocery store)
1 cup pineapple
1 cup blueberries
½ cup beetroot
A slice of ginger
1 tsp flax seeds
Blend the liquid and greens first. Add the rest of the ingredients. Blend more until you have no chunks left.
- If you are using frozen fruits, feel free to omit the ice
- You can use any fruit of your choice like mango, banana, kiwi, strawberries etc
- You can replace orange juice with coconut water or any other liquid but that will alter the sweetness so adjust the fruits accordingly
