The green smoothie trend

There's a trend right now, which it should have been a trend all along, called the Green Smoothie.   There are all sorts of sites set up to help people drink and feel a lot healthier with the help of incorporating greens into your smoothie blends and drinking them daily.  

At this moment there is a challenge going on and it's called the 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge.

It is a challenge that goes from April 1-30th and it is a way to incorporate leafy greens more into our diet.  

There is also another challenge, involving green smoothies, called the Seven Day Green Smoothie Challenge over at ABpetite.


The benefits are amazing with the green smoothies and they can pretty much be anything you really want them to be.  I haven't joined either one of these challenges but I have been drinking a green smoothie daily since I read about them on Ashlee's blog.  I was curiously intrigued and just had to give it a try.  



Here is the smoothie recipe I have been making daily, and I will say, my complexion and energy are amazing since drinking these.

My green smoothies consist of:

• 2 cups of water
• 2 Granny Smith apples (cut into pieces and seeds removed)
• 2 Bananas
• The juice of 1 whole lemon
• 5 Celery stalks
• 2 handfuls of baby spinach leaves
• 8 leaves of Romaine lettuce
• 1 kiwi






I drink one of these for breakfast every morning along with a mug of warm lemon water and a mug of green tea.  It's a great kick start to my day and the best part is, it is very filling and tastes AMAZING!  

*I like the taste of celery, but if you don't you can put in or take away as much as you want.  Same with the other ingredients as well.

Eco-Tip:  Try mixing vinegar and essential oils together to clean your home with.  The less chemical-laden cleaners you inhale the better your'll feel in the end.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
