Meatless Monday Recipe: Super Clean Green Smoothie

 

Does the idea of choking down a glass of liquified lettuce and kale make you more than a little queasy? I have to admit, I have tasted a green smoothie or two that was truly awful! Enough to turn me off completely until I found this one … the Green Smoothie from Dr. Oz’s 3-Day Detox Cleanse. It’s yummy enough that I want to drink it all the time, not just during a cleanse.

It’s super easy to make, and if you despise one of the raw ingredients (like I despise raw celery) ┬ájust leave it out!! In my opinion, the pineapple and coconut oil are what make this smoothie a winner, so try to include these if at all possible!

Here’s what you need …

How To Make A Green SmoothieIngredients:

  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup kale leaves
  • 1/2 green apple
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened pineapple chunks

Preparation:

Simply add all ingredients to a blender, blend well, and enjoy!
