Green Drink

0 comments

Time: 10 minutes

Serves: Approximately 3, 12-15 oz portions

Inspired by: I’ve always loved the idea of a green drink for an on-the-go snack, but never thought they were all that appealing to actually drink. I was wrong! I think this one tastes fresh and delicious. Chia seeds will thicken it and add protein, or you can add some protein powder as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small piece of ginger – peeling not required (size depends on how much you like fresh ginger)
  • 1 piece of a Jalapeño pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Chia seeds or 1-2 scoops of pea protein powder
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 cucumber (approximately 10 inches long by 1.5? diameter – I prefer English or Persian cucumbers and keeping the skin on)
  • 2 green apples with cores and seeds removed (or red apples or peaches if you prefer sweeter)
  • 1 bunch parsley (with stems)
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach

Preparation:

After washing everything, set the blender to “liquefy” and add the first 6 ingredients. Once they are blended well, add the celery, cucumber, apples or peaches and blend again. Then add the greens a bit at a time until they are blended well with the rest of the liquid.
