take the recipe below and use any high speed blender or juicer.
simple green shake:
handful of laciano kale (remove stems)*
2 handfuls spinach
1/2 c. coconut water (can use regular water)*
2-3 ice cubes
- blend ingredients until smooth then chug!
*if using regular water you may want to add a few apple slices or 1/2 banana to cover up the bitterness of the greens.
*any dark leafy greens can be used and often i mix them up with whatever is in the fridge
i also prefer to skip pre-made hummus. especially now that i know how EASY it is to make! store bought hummus is made with a lot of canola oil, added citric acids and other flavor ingredients. no thanks- keep it simple. you can make hummus in any blender or food processor.
1 can chickpeas (drain and rinse)
1/2 lemon juiced
pinch of sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 c. chopped basil
1 clove garlic
splash of water if needed (too thick to blend)
-blend ingredients and enjoy with some fresh broccoli, cauliflower and carrots!
