The sun is shining bright through the window and fills me with the rapture to wake up from the passive mode of my blog. I am enjoying some sunshine and a long waited vacation time. Meantime I have the recipe for a green smoothie I tried. I know the word 'Green Smoothie' is not well received by everyone. The raised eyes brows, the disgusted look and unpleasant face are some of the common gestures people make when they hear the word 'Green Smoothie'. But I think if we take baby steps in making green smoothies, it will be lot better than hopping all the way to the 'All Green Smoothie'.
This recipe includes only one green leafy vegetable. Trust me, there is no leafy after taste because of the apple, grapes and honey added to this smoothie. The nutrient rich Avocado and Spinach makes this smoothie a healthy and filling option for those who try to skip meal to lose the extra adipose. Besides the ingredients in this smoothie helps to rejuvenate your skin, boosts up your immune system and provides hair health benefits.
Serves - 2 Adults
1 - Avocado pitted and flesh scooped out
2 - Apples peeled, cored and cubed
20 - baby spinach leaves
25 - green seedless grapes
2 cups - cold water
1 tbsp. - honey
- Blend all the ingredients together in a blender and enjoy them immediately.
- You can increase the amount of water per desired consistency.
- If using Green Granny Smith apples, you may have to adjust the amount of honey. I used yellow apples in this recipe.
- You can add few pieces of ice cubes too while blending the smoothie for a chilled smoothie.
