Super simple, alkalizing and delicious green smoothie for instant energy boost! I created this super green smoothie a few years ago and it instantly became one of my favorites. You can add some raw natural sweeteners like stevia leaves (1-4 is enough!) if you are new to green smoothies and this tastes bitter or a bit too ”green” for you.
It’s super easy to change the recipe ingredients by season, I like to rotate my leafy greens between using parsley, kale, nettle, cilantro, spinach or dandelion greens. Sometimes I also like to add some wheatgrass juice to get more nutrients, amino acids and chlorophyll into my diet. Avocado makes green smoothie more creamy, is full of healthy fats, carotenoids and helps you to absorb more nutrients. Water and fiber of the cucumbers support your digestive system and can helps you to stay hydrated. Lemon juice gives nice fresh taste to the green smoothie and helps your body to neutralize acid waste.
I try to make at least one green smoothie everyday, because it’s so easy way to eat more greens. Sometimes when there has been period of time when I haven’t had time to make my green smoothies, I have noticed that it’s not so easy to eat as much raw greens and veggies and also my energy levels aren’t as good as when I have started my day with green smoothie.
My favorite way is to blend big amount of fresh greens and veggies and drink it up! Actually I try to chew it up, because when we are chewing our food we are covering that food with Saliva which contains an enzyme that helps to break the food down for the digestive process. If we don’t chew our food because we are consuming it in the smoothie form then we are also giving it to our digestive system without an important enzyme to help it digest.
