Green on Green on Green Smoothie Juice

TFH_GreenSmoothieJuice

I call this recipe a “green smoothie juice” because although I kept the fiber, the consistency is closer to juice that needs to be shaken up. Also, I applied the same rule I have for juicing: keep it simple. Juicing can get expensive. So I focused on finding several items full of nutrients to help my body get to optimal body rolling healthy. I have a tour planned, remember?

Most of my juices consisted of two vegetables (spinach/celery and carrots) and one fruit (apples or pears) and sometimes ginger. Keeping the same model, I tried quite a few combinations of this smoothie but here’s my favorite.

1 handful of fresh spinach (or 1 cup frozen)

½ cup of pineapple

1 small cucumber (or ½ large cucumber)

1 teaspoon of ground ginger (or 1” piece of fresh ginger)

4 oz Kombucha + 8 oz Water (or all water/tea)

Directions

  1. Add everything to a blender (or large Nutribullet cup, in my case).

  2. Blend.

  3. Enjoy!

Using frozen spinach may require more blending time but using frozen pineapples makes it way more refreshing. Also, the kombucha makes it a little foamy. It’s pretty light so if it sits too long, you’ll need to shake it up. I just flip it upside down with the top on it.

I’ve also tried it with the following items:

  • Celery

  • Arugula

  • Kale

  • Romaine

  • Green Cabbage

  • Pears (bartlett, anjou, bosc)

  • Apples (granny smith)

  • Watermelon

  • Blueberries

  • Mint

  • Parsley

Note: I’ve used both regular(?) and Persian cucumbers. Also, watermelon and blueberries won’t give you a green smoothie.
