Green Smoothies (My way)

I love making smoothies... and even more so, I love making GREEN smoothies! My husband loves it when I make them and so do my girls (4 years old and 2 years old). Sometimes vegetables aren't the easiest to get into your familie's diet, but if blended and disguised... well then it's a piece of cake!! ;)

I have had some requests to share my recipes with the Green Smoothies that I have been making... And of course, I would LOVE to share!

When I make Green Smoothies, I like to keep them simple, yet nutritious.

I choose from green leafy veggies such as kale, collard greens, or veggies like celery, cucumber, apple or carrots... all depending on what I'm wanting that day.

I add a couple cups of water to the blender and my veggies that I choose.

I blend the veggies and water so that the veggies are liquidfied.

Once the contents in the blender are liquidfied, I add frozen fruit, Vega EFA Oil, Hemp Seeds and anything else that I may want in my smoothie. Then I blend the remaining ingredients, poor the smoothie into a glass and enjoy!

It's simple, it's fun, and it's a great way to get alot of well needed nutrients in your body.

I'm with you TheFitnessFreak... I juiced mustard greens once and almost fell onto the floor!!!

And, like Krista, what's up with the no smoothie rule? You can have non-sweet green smoothies with more mild greens like cucumbers and celery mixed in with the heartier greens. Plus, you can lemon to help offset the bitterness. And, some people add stevia. :) Greens are Great!
