I’ve been lax on drinking my green smoothies. When perusing a recent issue of Women’s Health magazine, I saw an article on a green smoothie to help give you more clear skin. It’s recommended that you drink 8oz of this smoothie every morning. The recipe is a monster that will make you a week’s worth of smoothie at once.
I made a few changes, so that I could make it with the ingredients that I had on hand. That probably means that I’ll end up with a giant zit for the substitution.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 3 cups spinach
- 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
- 3-4 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 apple
- 1 banana
- 1 orange(WH recommended a pear)
- juice of 1/2 lime(WH recommended lemon)
Place into a blender and blend until smooth.
It turned out to be pretty tasty. I’m not sure it will have any amazing skin benefits, but I like that it packs a lot of vitamins in a small glass and now I have a week’s worth of smoothie waiting for me in my fridge.
