Green Smoothie

In Nutrition, Recipe on March 23, 2013 at 3:45 pm

This drink may be a bit chunky if you don’t have a high speed blender but the flavor profile is still quite nice! The addition of raw, soaked cashews adds fat and protein making it a balanced meal that avoids blood sugar spikes. Place ingredients in blender in the order listed below for ease of blending. Comments from my neighbors, who are not regular green juice drinkers: “surprisingly refreshing” and “it kind of grows on you” hahahahaha

Mosty greens, a bit of fruit, and raw soaked cashews balance out this smoothie.

Mosty greens, a bit of fruit, and raw soaked cashews balance out this smoothie.

Ingredients:

2 chard leaves

2 kale leaves

1 cup parsley

1/2 cucumber – peeled, chopped

1/2 lemon – juiced

1/2 apple – peeled, cored, chopped

1/2 cup frozen mango

1/2 cup cashews – soaked

1 cup water

Makes about 16oz. Drink 1/2 in the morning and save the rest for an afternoon snack. Will keep for 1-2 days in fridge but tends to get thicker over time :/

8oz = 246 kcals, 12g fat, 5g fiber, 7g protein. Good source of vitamins A, C, & K, iron, phosphorus, manganese, copper, and magnesium.
