(Recipe and “5 Smoothie Health Tips” from Young and Raw, part of the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge)

  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 1 Lime, peeled
  • ½ Lemon, juice only
  • 2 Oranges, juiced (if you put the whole orange in your
    smoothie will be bitter)
  • 2 handfuls of Spinach
  • (I added 1 tbsp of Chia Seeds)
  • (I added 1 tbsp of Wheatgrass Powder)

DELICIOUS!!! It obviously requiered a bit more effort with the peeling and the juicing but it was definitely worth it.

5 Smoothie Health Tips from our Resident H.N. Ali Washington:

1.Bananas contain potassium, which can help increase focus and concentration.
2.Limes are just as effective as lemons at promoting the cleansing of the liver.
3.Lemon juice will help to alkalize the body.
4.Oranges may help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
5.The high vitamin C content of this smoothie (from the citrus) will increase the
amount of iron and calcium you will be able to absorb from the kale in this smoothie.
