Recipie: Green Smoothie
Here's a smoothie recipe you may not have thought of before. Green smoothies consist of 3 basic ingredients: greens, fruit and water. Have fun experimenting with a wide range of varieties of both the greens and the fruit in order to reap the most benefit. You may be surprised to find that the simple combination of greens and fruit is quite delicious. Servings: 1 Here's what you need...
• 1 bunch (2 cups) red dandelion greens (feel free to use spinach or any other dark greens)
• 1 cup strawberries
• 1 banana
• 1-2 cups filtered water
In a high speed blender mix the ingredients until smooth.
