Are you eating dark green, leafy veggies EVERYDAY? If not, you SHOULD! They are great for the liver, high in calcium and magnesium, and highly nutritious. Getting your dark green leafy greens in salads, soups, and stir fries are excellent, but another way to incorporate them in your daily eating is hidden in fresh fruit smoothies! The fastest and most effective way to get the luscious nutrients we need from fruits and vegetables is to drink them.
handful of fresh spinach, kale, or swiss chard
another fruit of choice (orange, mango, pineapple, berries)
1 stick celery
juice of 1 fresh lemon
fresh ginger to taste
1 tsp chia seeds
*optional: natural sweetener to taste (I prefer a tad of maple syrup but depending on the fruit, you might not even need a sweetener)
handful of ice
desired amount of clean water (depending on how thick you want the smoothie to be)
Blend till smooth.
