FMTV - Signature Green Smoothie

Signature Green Smoothie

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: Food Matters Smoothie Recipes | Episode: 10 | Runtime: 3m 28s | Release date: 2016

Starting your morning with a green smoothie is an excellent way to feel reinvigorated, refreshed & ready to take on the day.

Serves: 1

Why it is good for you

Adding spinach, ‘the green element’, to your smoothie is a great way to get in those extra vitamins. High in vitamin A, C, E, K and bioavailable in iron, manganese, calcium and folate, spinach is truly a powerhouse green that supports many functions of the body.

Discreet in flavor, the avocado in the smoothie is a little powerhouse on its own, and high in essential fatty acids (monounsaturated fats) a type of fat which is an integral cell function and synthesis of some important hormones. Not to mention, adding this fat into your smoothie helps you feel ‘fuller’ for longer and prevents those post-meal hunger pangs.

We also wanted to say, "Fear not green smoothie newbies. This recipe does include bananas, cinnamon & dates for sweetness!". The combination of these ingredients makes for a delicious blend; not to mention all these ingredients are functional foods as well! Bananas are high in potassium and great for metabolic balance; cinnamon reduces blood pressure; and dates contain fiber!

It's very interesting. I felt much more energetic yesterday. I just had the smoothie, which was delicious. I added mint, collagen powder, and L-glutamine, which I use for my gut. I had the detox tea and lemon this AM instead of just lemon water...and I took a 20 minute Epsom salt and lavender water soak, which was lovely. I'm wondering if the bath is working to draw out more toxins. I feel very lethargic and ready for a nap. Is this usual? I am trying to remember, as I have done Pancycharma's in past years and I think it was usually the 3rd day, though there was body work, that I often felt this way. Can you comment on this? Thank you.

Thank you, I didn’t have any nut milk so I used coconut water and it delicious 😋 I look forward to using almond milk next time. I’m so excited I’m starting to feel the goodness take charge 😊
