Living Healthy The Smoothie Way!!
Recently I have been blending up a storm in the kitchen. I have read a lot on greens and fruits that does the body well and wanted to improve my health. Last week we bought a Vitamix and I love it. I have been on a healthy journey for a few months now and I am enjoying it.
Dark leafy vegetables are great for our body but lets face it, they don't taste good. They are bitter and unless you add salts an butters they simply just taste bitter. However cooking leafy vegetables and adding salt and butter makes it less nutritious. But throwing these raw nutritious elements into your blender with some sweet frozen fruits mask the taste and you still get the benefits.
Just want to share this morning's smoothie recipe with you. Bare in that mind I have ZERO time in the morning (on a workday) to do anything in the kitchen. So, I make smoothies in the evening ( I have time for that. Lol!). After my boyfriend and I have a cup the rest I put in the refrigerator for my Morning Smoothie.
See below for my current smoothie recipe:
- 2 Kale Leafs
- 1 Large Carrot
- 1 Orange
- 2 Apple
- 1 Kiwi
- 2 Celery Stalks (optional or use less if you think its overpowering for you)
- Frozen Strawberries
- Tablespoon Chia seeds
I will be sharing more smoothie recipes and tips with you along with a Vitamix review. Stay Tuned!
Do you make smoothies often? Please share your recipe!
