I stumbled upon the idea of ‘green monster’ smoothies entirely by accident, while trying to research smoothie recipes to incorporate the giant carton of spinach I buy weekly. Now, this one is not super high in protein, so it may not leave you full, however, when I was drinking this once a day for about a week, my skin was practically radiating with thankfulness. I just have a wee Magic Bullet one shot, so feel free to double the recipe if you’ve got an appliance that can handle it. Drink it for a week and watch your skin glow!
You will need:
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 green apple
- 1 stalk celery
- 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1-2 cups spinach or kale (I find spinach tends to blend better)
- cold water
I usually fill my blender with the lemon juice and food first, and see how much space is left for water to pour in. Then I simply blend, drink, and walk around with a look of extreme smugness for the rest of the day. Followed by amazing skin, of course. Enjoy!
