A couple of weeks ago I was in Canada for business and went to dinner with some guys. One of the guys was a health fanatic and we started talking about his routine and his food. He is a big runner and also a low calorie guy. Have you heard of these guys who try to keep it to 1200 calories a day. He isn’t that strict but will go low calorie a few days a week. We talked about dinner and he said he has a green smoothie several times a week. He said he craves them so I have been making and drinking them for breakfast for about a week. They are pretty delicious.
Here is how I make it….
1 green apple
1 tbs of ginger
1/4 frozen pineapple
Two handfuls of spinach and kale mix
1 lime juiced
1/2 cup of Organic natural apple juice
a few cubes of ice
I take most of the skin off the apple and cucumber and rough chop them. I add everything in my Vitamix and start it slow and hit it hard for about 1-2 mins to break everything down as smooth as possible.
