immunity energizer smoothie

I've made a kajillion fruity-green smoothies in my day, but I've had a hankering to just jump in and do some zingy, spicy, and mostly veggie ones.

This one fits the bill, and though the kiddiewinks chose not to indulge, Stephen and I really enjoyed our glasses.

Adapted from a recipe in Green Smoothie Revolution.

You'll need:
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of one lemon
  • chunk of fresh ginger (you can leave the peel on)
  • one garlic clove
  • 1/4 leek
  • several kale leaves
  • fresh seaweed (I found this at my local international market in the produce section)
  • water, to desired consistency
  • chia seeds (a good deal from the Mexican spice section of my int'l market)
  • ground flax seeds
Do this:



And then don't be surprised at a sudden energy burst. No lie!
