Simple Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are a great way to include leafy greens to your diet.  After being broken down in a blender, the greens are easier for your body to assimilate and the nutrients become easily absorbed.  Here is a great starter  green smoothie because it is sweet and creamy.  My kids love this one.  At first they were put off by the color and had absolutely no interest in trying it.  Then my husband came up with the brilliant idea of telling them to close their eyes and picture it pink.  When they did they said it tasted great and finished the whole drink.  Now they have no problem with the color.  I recommend blending in a high powered blender like a Vitamix, it just makes the smoothie so smooth.  Just throw in the ingredients and blend on high.

1 banana
1 cup strawberries
2-3 cups fresh spinach  
1 cup coconut water



ready to blend

beautiful living foods

enjoy!

  3. You can get coconut water fresh from a young thai coconut by hacking it open with a chefs knife, or buy it in containers at most grocery stores. Some brands are O.N.E. and Zico. I hope this helps!
