Well I am so excited to once again drink nothing but green smoothies for the next three days. To be honest, I am excited, but also I know me and I just love salads, so not having one for the next three days, will definitely be a challenge for me.
I read that Tera from The Raw Divas is eliminating sweet fruits for the next three days and I applaud her for that. I am working on creating green smoothie recipes without SWEET fruits, but I’m not there yet. I know this is a process that will help reduce the amount of sugar in my diet.
I just love the morning time because I know that I will start my day off with a few glasses of refreshing water and then I get to dive into a delicious green smoothie. This will help me to stay on track all throughout the day.
I have made this smoothie before with a few different ingredients, but I decided to cut out the agave after reading an article that Raw Mom contributor Penny Powell sent to me. I really do enjoy adding medjool dates to my green smoothie, but I am going to work on allowing the natural sugars tantalize my taste buds.
Naturally Good Green Smoothie Recipe
- ·One bunch kale (you can use any variety, but I used the curly kale in this recipe)
- ·One cup pineapple chunks
- ·Two Granny Smith apples (you can use any variety; I was in the mood for something a bit tart)
- ·One Banana
- ·Half cup water (optional)
Blend and enjoy!
