Last week I interviewed celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder and she mentioned her glowing green smoothie, which many of you have been asking about. Even though I've been opting to purchase green juice from my local deli (as of late my go-to has been Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness), I sought out the recipe for the magic smoothie that Kim's celeb clients rave about. Now all I have to do is whip out my blender.
The Bolthouse Farms drink has most of the same ingredients in it, and is more convenient for me since I'm always on the go, but I'm definitely going to try to make this coveted recipe on the weekend.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups water 1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped 3-4 stalks organic celery 1/2 head of a large bunch or 3/4 of a small bunch of spinach 1 organic apple, cored and chopped 1 organic pear, cored and chopped 1 organic banana Juice of 1/2 fresh organic lemon
optional: 1/3 bunch organic cilantro (stems okay) 1/3 bunch organic parsley (stems okay)
Directions: Add the water and chopped head of romaine to the blender. Starting the blender at low speed, mix until smoothi. Gradually moving to higher speeds, add the celery, apple and pear. Add the cilantro and parsley, if you are choosing to add them. Add the banana and lemon juice last.
