green smoothie
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….

 Serves 2

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!
