This week (right now actually) I did something super out of the ordinary. For me anyway.
Usually, I am a chew your food kinda gal. I have never really been into drinking my meals.
Lately, as the weather has warmed and as I have gotten a little busier in my life, I have decided I could appreciate the convenience speed and overall large package of nutrition that a smoothie can offer.
So I made one:
Look at that deep dark nutrient providing colour!
Here is what I jammed in there:
1/2 head spinach (about 3 cups)
1/2 bunch parsley (1 cup-ish)
1/2 bunch cilantro (1 cup-ish)
1/4 cup mint leaves
2 inch slice ginger
2 tsp chlorella
2 tsp spirulina
1 tsp 6 mushroom blend (check out http://www.harmonicarts.ca to find it)
2 cups mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1 tsp vanilla powder
1/8 tsp stevia
1 cup water
I blended my greens with the water first. Then added everything else and blended until smooth.
This smoothie tastes like berries, mint and ginger 🙂 It is a super great way to hide greens if you do not particularly enjoy their taste. It also hid the flavour of the chlorella well as well. I think it taste like what diarrhoea must taste like.
I loved it.
This smoothie is full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants It is a heavy metal chelator, is nourishing for the liver and kidneys. It is balancing for the mood and uplifting for the spirits. And it is yummy.
