I made the BIGGEST GREEN smoothie yesterday morning after I finished my Physique 57 workout. I almost couldn’t fit the lid on the BlendTec.
The Über-Green Smoothie
by Certified Natural Chef Shari Becht
- 9 oz water
- 1 apple, keep peel on if organic, cored and cut into chunks
- 2 cuties/clementines, peeled
- 1/2 very large cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 stalk celery cut into chunks
- 1/2 avocado, peel/pit removed
- very large fistful of spinach
- medium fistful of clover sprouts
Place all items into a large blender pitcher and blend until creamy smooth. Serve and enjoy!
Mmm avocado in a green smoothie makes it so thick and creamy! This smoothie rocked. It kept me full for almost 3 hours.
While we are on the subject of green smoothies, do you ever make your smoothies ahead of time to drink later? I never used to do that, but have made a few “to go smoothies” to take to work and drink later in the day while I’m there. The smoothie still TASTES fine, but I’ve learned that they don’t agree with me after they’ve been blended and held for later consumption.
DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ANYONE ELSE?? I have to know if this is just me and my ridiculously sensitive ‘system’ or if others experience this.
It makes me wonder if it has to do with the enzymes, natural sugars or fiber breaking down (or something along those lines.)
So do tell if you have had this happen!
