Google green smoothie and you will find multiple recipes for this green concoction. Green smoothies are a blend of fruits and vegetables with a heavy dose of green leafy vegetables usually kale or Swiss chard. My favorite recipe is 1 pear, 1 cucumber, 1/8 of a fresh pineapple and 2 cups of raw kale. Other recipes include grapes or other fruit. You need a heavy blender (Vitamix) to pulverizegreen-smoothie-300x300 this into a drink. My recipe makes 4 servings and is about 50 calories per serving. Is it magical, no, but it is a great way to get a serving of greens. It is also easy to take on the go. I have one in my lunch box right now. If you have a strong blender, give them a try.
