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