I’m all about smoothies this week!
Last weekend I realized I was just not eating enough fruits and veggies. After a trip to Pure Kitchen for lunch (which I adored – had the layer dip, mystical bowl and champion juice) I vowed to have a smoothie a day all week (and hopefully continue longer than that).
The problem with smoothies, at least for me, is variety. I like to switch things up. We have a ton of grapefruits kicking around, and I’ve never used grapefruit in a smoothie, but had this brilliant idea of combining them with spinach and apple for sweetness. It was awesome!
Not too sweet, but refreshingly tart, I devoured both servings of this smoothie. I instantly felt cleansed! That, combined with my meal at Pure Kitchen, made it a super healthy day.
- 1 grapefruit, peeled, seeded
- 1 large apple, cored
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 large banana, frozen
- 3 ice cubes
- 1/2 cup coconut milk or orange juice (or liquid of your choice)
- 1 tbsp ground flax (optional)
- Put all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more ice to thicken, and more milk/juice to thin. If your banana isn't frozen, be sure to add an extra ice cube.
