My Go To Green Smoothie

 

A couple of years ago when I was strictly eating Paleo, this was my daily go to smoothie. I still make it often, but haven’t had it since becoming pregnant (morning sickness). Now that my morning sickness has subside, I am craving fruits and veggies like CRAZY! And making a smoothie doesn’t have to be difficult. This is probably one of the easiest smoothies you’ll make. It is delicious and nutritious.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of fresh spinach
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 apple
  • 1 inch piece of ginger (I buy fresh, peel, chop, then freeze in a ziplock bag)
  • 1 banana
  • juice of 1 lemon (or a good squeeze of lemon juice).
  • 1 cup of water
  • 5 cubes of ice

Directions:

Not much prepping involved since I like to keep a ziplock bag full of 1 inch pieces of ginger in the freezer. Other then that, I chop up the apple and de core it (I leave the skin on), peel the banana, get everything together and throw it into my Dash blender (make sure produce is thoroughly washed before blending). And blend until smooth. That’s it!

Easy peasy yummy green smoothie. Clean up is a breeze too, I can make this smoothie and clean up in just 5 minutes. Ingredients are not crazy expensive, and you can easily calculate how much produce you’ll need for a weeks worth of healthy daily smoothies. Great to fuel your body with natures medicine.

If you make this smoothie let me know how you liked it, or if you customized it to your own liking. Would love to know! I now vow to make this smoothie everyday during my pregnancy, lets see if that happens! I’ll keep you guys updated. Thanks for reading as always, happy hump day everyone!
