30 Day Smoothie/Juice Challenge: DAY 27

DAY 27: Recipe of the Day

Summer may be over, but if you live in a warmer climate like me, you can still enjoy the refreshing blends of those famous summer fruits. Smoothies can be enjoyed all year round, maybe adding in some festive ingredients to accompany the holidays and seasonal tastes. So, who cares if you would normally be laying out poolside sipping on this drink or on a beach with a little umbrella (for looks of course) in your homemade, raw smoothie blend…ENJOY EVERY DROP!!!

  • ice
  • sprig of mint

Throw it all in a blender. Blend till smooth.

Adding veggies to your fruity smoothie blends, also known as Green Smoothies or Veggie Smoothies, can increase the nutrient, vitamin, and mineral content in every glass. They have become a staple in my house and even the kids ask for them. Once you try it for yourself and have fun with different blend combinations you realize all this time you have been missing out!! However, smoothies do not HAVE to be sweet, high in calories, and full of sugar to satisfy you. Use vegetables in placeof fruit in your blender for a nutrient packed, super delicious, and quite satisfying mid-day drink or even savory breakfast blend. Making a vegetable smoothie with all raw ingredients is a great way to fill your body with a multitude of vitamins and minerals. While you can blend and puree almost any raw vegetable combination into a nutritious smoothie, some do blend more easily. Leafy greens, avocados, garlic, broccoli, orange or purple carrots, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes, and onions work well in any raw vegetable smoothie.Try this Veggie Blend out add it to your repertoire of smoothie making recipes!

 

carrotsVeggie Delight

  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced avocado
  • 1 cup raw broccoli

Chop up all ingredients for a smoother consistency, especially if you have a lower quality blender. If you do, you may need to add a little water at a time to help the blending process. Do NOT add too much water, the vegetable will produce their own liquid as they blend. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
