Amazing Veggie Energy BoosterThis savory vegetable smoothie recipe helps control your appetite and boosts your energy.
|1 large clove garlic|
|1 cup kale|
|1 cup spinach|
|1 medium slice fresh ginger|
|1 small stalk (bundle) chopped celery|
|1/2 large cucumber (not peeled)|
|10 baby carrots|
|1/4 small beet|
|6 stalks asparagus|
|1/4 cup parsley|
|1 medium tomato|
|1 thin slice unpeeled lemon|
Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Season to taste (a pinch of flavored sea salt works very well).
Our experiments have found that starting with the tomato, garlic, spinach, kale, and lemon works best. Otherwise you may end up with an air bubble in your blender. Start on a low speed until everything is nicely chopped, then increase speed slowly until you reach your desired consistency.
Makes two quarts.
