Hello Followers and everyone else who comes across this post. Below is a recipe and video for the green shake that my sister and I drink on a daily basis. It provides us with key nutrients from greenfruits and vegetables and it tastes pretty good!
Ingredients: A) Vegetables I. Broccoli II. Spinach *NOTE: Use spinach and broccoli in the shake only twice a week. These two vegetables have a lot of iron and can cause constipation especially if you don’t drink a lot of water. III. Kale IV. Peas (like bags of frozen peas, they contain A LOT of protein) V. Celery VI. Cucumber VII. Parsley VIII. Ginger root-cut a piece about the size of a tooth of garlic (Fact: Ginger is a natural antibiotic—just like garlic—and boosts your immune system so as nasty as it may sound, ADD IT TO YOUR SHAKE) IX. *OPTIONAL: If you want you can squeeze one or two lemons in the shake. B) Fruits I. Pear II. Kiwi III. Green Grapes IV. Granny Smith Apples V. Pineapple
**To make the shake a little sweeter you can use STEVIA IN THE RAW which is a 100% natural zero calorie sweetener and can be found in ANY grocery store. HOWEVER the shake itself is already kind of sweet because of the fruit so try it out without sweetener first.**
Get three vegetables and two fruits of your choice from the above list and put them in the blender with water and blend until it’s pretty much a thick green liquid. IT IS IMPORTANT TO SWITCH THE INGREDIENTS AROUND EVERY WEEK SO DON‘T FORGET TO DO THAT.
*NOTE: You can add more water to lessen the thickness but not so much to the point where it’s ridiculously diluted.**
To make things easier buy the fruits and vegetables and wash them and chop/dice them up in small, easy to blend pieces and put them in Ziploc bags in the freezer this way you have all ingredients ready to make the shake, you can just throw them in the blender.
Make a good amount that will last between 1-3 days that way you don’t have to make one every morning.
Drink at least an 8oz glass of green shake every morning before breakfast and make sure you get breakfast in your stomach within the hour of drinking it.
Drink another green shake—also 8oz.—after your last meal of the day or even substitute it for supper.
You can drink it three times a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner. However it’s best to start with twice a day at least until you’re used to the taste—which isn’t bad at all it’s very tasty.
