This Sunday I woke up to sunshine. And what better an accompaniment than a fresh green smoothie with peach and banana? That’s what I said. It’s a fabulous start to a fabulous day, as it concentrates green leaves in about 2 cups of a smoothie and is a great way to get the fiber/vitamins/nutrients, satisfy a sweet tooth with the fruit, and hydrate and strengthen your body. Drink up!
– 1 head of romaine lettuce
– 1 handful of parsley (w/o stems)
– 1 large peach
– 1 1/2 – 2 cucumbers
– 1 banana
– 4-5 drops of liquid stevia or 1 tsp honey
Assemble the ingredients and blend in a food processor or blender. You might have to add the greens in rounds, as they require more work to break down.
Adding the rest of the greens after round 1 of blending…
I always add the banana last because I don’t like to overblend it. I like the random banana chunk here and there.
The stevia adds a bit more sweetness, since we are going heavy on the greens. I also add the stevia last just to see if I even need it.
Serve in a wine glass, cuz its classy.
Slurp! It’s the ultimate thirst quencher and as healthy as breakfast can possible get.
