Everyone has heard that green smoothies can be healthful, but some people are simply afraid they won’t taste good or are turned off by the color green!
To help you with all of those possible roadblocks I hope you enjoy my new favorite green smoothie recipe that isn’t green!
I just love green smoothies, they feel and taste so balanced and can really be a perfect “one pot” meal. Really it’s hard to come up with a recipe that is more nutritious, easy to digest, and delicious than a green smoothie, plus they are quick and easy! Adding a green smoothie, or more than one green smoothie to your daily lifestyle could be the best decision you make. In one green smoothie, you can get multiple servings of fruits and vegetables that go a long way toward your total nutritional needs!
Because this green smoothie isn’t green you may find it easier to get your kids and loved ones to try it out, it’s a perfect “gateway” green smoothie!
I really hope you love this one and enjoy adding more green smoothies into your, and your loved ones’ lives!
My Favourite Green Smoothie, That isn’t Green!
Iceberg Lettuce (460 g / 1 lb)
Dates (300 g / .67 lb)
Strawberries (460 g / 1 lb)
Optional: add water to desired thickness
Loosely chop up or tear all of the iceberg lettuce and place in the Almighty Vitamix Blender, blend until it’s a thick slurry using the tamper.
Pit and add the dates to the blended iceberg lettuce and blend until fairly smooth.
Add the strawberries leaving the tops on if they are organic and blend until smooth.
Add water if desired or pour over chopped fruit and eat in a bowl with a spoon!
I hope you really enjoy this green smoothie that isn’t green a TON!
As I mentioned in the video I love using dates in my smoothies and other dishes, they are my natural sweetener of choice!
While I do get some of my dates at local stores and ethnic shops I have found the fresh organic dates from 7 hot dates / Bautista Family Farms to be of the best quality I have ever seen!!
Try them out for yourself, I am sure you will be amazed!
Wishing you Much
