What a difference a year makes! Last October, I was inspired but more than a little skeptical that I would be able to mix up a tasty, mostly vegetable green drink.
Keeping this in mind, it’s time for my Second Annual Green Drink Challenge, so that I can see your latest ideas. Post your favorite recipe here in the comments section below and you’ll automatically be entered for a drawing to win a copy of the second edition (just published) of my Acid-Alkaline Food Guide. To help you get started, here’s a recipe from a coworker who has finally agreed to share! I like this one because it features bone-building super foods: blueberries, kale and Matcha (or maccha) green tea powder.
Richard’s Super-Food Smoothie
½ C filtered water
½ C coconut water (good source of potassium and magnesium)
½ C organic cherries (frozen)
½ C organic blueberries
1 C organic kale (I prefer baby kale)
1 C organic 50/50 romaine/spinach mix
1 tsp Matcha green tea powder 3-5 dashes of cinnamon (I prefer Ceylon cinnamon — it’s easier on the liver if you’re consuming it every day)
½ cup coconut kefir (or Greek yogurt if you can tolerate dairy)
Blend in blender until smooth.
