Adults only green smoothie

This is one of my go to green smoothie recipes. I always seem to have these ingredients in my fridge and they work wonderfully together. I typically add ½ a banana or apple to this if giving this to someone who is new to drinking green smoothies or doesn’t drink them a lot.

Ingredients:

½ avocado
1 stick of celery, broken into pieces
Handful of kale
Small handful of spinach
½ small cucumber
Juice from ½ lemon
1 tablespoon of raw almonds
1 cup coconut water
½ cup water

To make:

Combine all of the ingredients into a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Depending on the strength of your blender you might need to chop up the ingredients before adding to your blender.

Tip: Vegetables are digested better in the body when you combine them with fat. Experiment with the following additions to your green smoothie:

+ chia seeds + flaxseed + coconut oil + nut butters + nuts + nut milk + flaxseed oil
