Day 14: Apple Basil Vitamin Booster

Image

 (Recipe and Smoothie Facts part of the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge by Young and Raw)

  • 2 Apples, Cored (I used Granny Smith)
  • ½ Frozen Banana
  • 3-4 Basil Leaves
  • 1 Lime, Juiced (I peeled it and used it whole)
  • 1 Handful of Greens (I used Kale and Spinach)
  • 1 tbsp. Hemp or Chia Seeds (I used Chia)
  • 1 Cup Water or Coconut Water (I used Coconut water)
  • (I added 1/2 tbsp Wheatgrass powder)

Very nice! By looking at the recipe I somehow thought this one would be chewy and boring but I was wrong. Yum. Cinnamon would’ve worked nicely. Made 2 full glasses.
