I know that I’ve shared this with you before, but just in case you want a smoothie that isn’t sweet, that is green and tangy, here you go. Greens alkalize the body, and this smoothie is great to correct over-indulgences….The pear is absolutely essential here because it mellows out everything else.
Absolutely, positively use organic ingredients. Organic means no pesticides or herbicides. I have yet to hear anyone say we need pesticides and herbicides for our good health….
|2 C water||4 cloves garlic, peeled|
|3-4 C greens (lettuce, chard, kale, spinach)||1-2 tsp good salt|
|1 C fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro*||1 avocado, pitted, peeled|
|1 lemon or lime, peeled||1 pear, halved, cored, but not peeled|
|1-2 tsp grated ginger, don’t peel||1 small cuke, unpeeled (zucchini works too)|
Blend with your Vitamix for about a minute. Enjoy! *Yes, use the stems and all!
