I have a smoothie almost daily. This recipe is a green powerhouse and called a V-8 Smoothie because it has 8 vegetables. Well technically, I think avocado is a fruit.
The green in this smoothie comes from kale, broccoli sprouts, curly parsley, and avocado. This is a great way to get your daily dose of greens. You could also use romaine lettuce (pictured) fresh spinach or another leafy green like arugula. This article gives you tons of examples of greens that you can add, all would work well in this smoothie. It really is a matter of what you have on hand and taste.
Don’t forget to add non-dairy milk, frozen or fresh banana, the apple and you’re ready to whirl. I've also included chia seeds which are a great source of omega 3s and flaxseeds.
I highly recommend checking out all my smoothie recipes because you can never have too many. It’s a great snack, a way to get in much-needed plant power and vitamins and besides they taste good too. During the summer, it’s a great way to prevent your body from dehydrating.
