Green Apple Smoothie Recipe
This is definitely a beginner’s green smoothie that even children will enjoy. Sometimes it’s hard for children, or even adults, to want to eat or drink something green, but when you show them the green apple and tell them it’s a smoothie, it helps make the concept acceptable—certainly more acceptable than a parsley or spinach smoothie!
1 green apple
1 kiwi, peeled
1 cup spinach
1 celery stalk, cut into pieces
1 1/2 cup filtered water
1/2 lime, juiced
1 cup ice
1 collard green leaf for extra nutrients
Replace 1/2 cup water with organic green tea for added antioxidants and extra energy
1 tablespoon soaked chia seeds
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
Depending on your type of blender and desired thickness, you may need to add some extra water.
Benefits of Kiwi:
Packing more vitamin C than an orange, the kiwifruit is a nutritional powerhouse. The skin of the kiwi—yes, you can eat the skin if the fruit is organic— is also nutrient rich. The kiwi is high in omega–3 fatty acids which promotes mobility in joints and tendons. The kiwi is also rich in vitamins A, B6, B12, C, E, K, copper and potassium, rich in heart-healthy polyphenols, supports the health of the brain and immune system, and protects against free radical damage.
