Do you find it difficult to get the recommended requirements of fruits and vegetables everyday? I must admit that although I try to eat healthy somedays are better than others. There are hundreds of green drink powders on the market and I’m sure that they may be of some benefit. I must admit that I have tasted some of them and they can be really disgusting. Food should be our medicine and by that I mean whole living foods. I wanted to find a way to get more fruits and veggies into my diet so I started looking for recipes. I have a hard time eating breakfast in the morning so I really enjoy having a shake instead of something else. I came across this particular recipe and decided to give it a try. I absolutely love it. The texture is somewhat pulpy, but the flavor is just so fresh. I would like to give credit to the author of the recipe, but I don’t recall now where I got it.
Loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and digestive enzymes and provides approximately 6 servings of fruits and vegetables.
2 Apples (cored)
2 Cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup chopped parsley

1 slice of fresh ginger root (thumbnail size) (may keep in freezer)
1 lemon (juice only)
1 med cucumber
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup of ice
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serves 2
I hope you will give this recipe a try and make it your own. Experiment with it and see what works for you.
