Great Green Smoothie Recipe

Try this amazing Green Smoothie recipe to kick-start your day and your life! Green drinks get their vibrant colour from chlorophyll, a nutrient-rich pigment found in all leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, celery and lettuce, that cleans the body of harmful toxins, oxygenates the blood and helps boost energy levels. Green drinks are also chock full of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Blending fruits and vegetables together breaks down the cells of plants and improves digestibility. As well, unlike juices, green smoothies contain all the fiber essential for good colon health. Fruits and vegetables also help to alkalinize the diet and therefore the body. Green smoothies improve energy, mental clarity and overall emotional and physical health. You’ll need a good blender (such as the Blendtec or Vitamix blender to really achieve optimal consistency with this smoothie)

2 cups spinach
1 cup water
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
