A spring snow storm is on its way and I'm totally intrigued by this Smoothie recipe - especially since reading this article > http://bit.ly/goodgrjuice ,
which says that cruciferous veggies are much healthier when cooked! So my modification of this recipe will be to par boil (just for a couple minutes) my kale before smoothifying it.
HOT Green Smoothie (serves 2)
Blend in high speed blender till warmed up and smooth (about 1.5 minutes max). Pour into glass and enjoy the warmth and sweetness of this little beauty. I will sometimes substitute a cup of fresh pineapple OR mango for the apple and add some cilantro to the mix of greens – DELICIOUS! I’ve been doing this for several weeks now and my body is loving it and so are my taste buds.
- 2 cups HOT water – I heat mine in tea kettle on stove (NOT boiling, just hot)
- Aloe vera gel chunk
- Large handful of greens (whatever you have around: spinach, swiss chard, kale, etc.)
- 1 Organic apple
- 2 bananas – peeled
- 1 TB. chia seeds
- small knob of ginger root
- 4 – 5 dates (I use Deglet Noor or use 2 – 3 Medjool dates) to taste OR stevia
