Green Foods Super Smoothie

6 Comments

If you haven’t already jumped on the bandwagon, today is the day to go green! Learning to incorporate dark, leafy greens into the diet is essential to establishing good, strong health.  Nutritionally, greens are very high in calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc and vitamins A, C, E and K. They are loaded with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll and many other micronutrients and phytochemicals.

One of the ABSOLUTE BEST ways to get your daily dose of greens is a green foods super smoothie. Feel free to mix and match ingredient to your liking, but this is my favorite:

Green Smoothie Recipe

1Cup Kale

2-3 Celery Stalks                                                  Healthy drink, vegetable juice, studio shot

½ Cup Chopped Cucumber

2 Ripe Kiwi, Cut in Chunks

Liquid Chlorophyll

1 Scoop Vibrant Health Green Vibrance Powder

2 Cups Green Tea

Add all ingredients to a Nutri-Bullet or blender and blend until smooth.

The chlorophyll and Vibrant Health powder is optional, but I highly recommend it for an extra boost of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. This green foods super smoothie is my daily go-to favorite; it’s the tastiest, healthiest, most delicious way to go green and thrive!

  1. This looks like an appetite for a very nutritious meal! I add a lot of these nutrients to my juicer, or when I want to add spirulina along with everything else; thanks for making my day even healthier:)))

  2. I love how many green foods you incorporated into one smoothie! I’ve never heard of liquid chlorophyll though; where do you find it?
