green smoothie

My recipe is a tasty mixture of greens and vegetables, the first one used on my juicing diet. I originally thought I would gag if I drank anything green and thick, but this was, as my grandmother from Germany and I would say,Β  “Ach du Lieber!”

Ach Du Lieber Veg Smoothie

Calories per serving: 170 if made with spinach, 250 if made with kale. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of raw spinach or kale (kale gives a milder flavor)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 2 tomatoes, cored and cut up
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (if desired)
  • 1 cup of ice

Directions

  • Place all items into a blender, and blend until smooth. Makes enough smoothie to fill a 24-ounce drinking glass, or 3 cups.

    I’ll definitely have to give this a try, I’m always looking to try new “green drinks”. I definitely love getting my daily calories in the healthiest way possible. This concoction actually seems pretty good- I love the incorporation of the red pepper flakes, probably gives it a nice kick!
