As promised, here’s another Green Smoothie recipe. This is one of my all-time favorites, not only for its beautiful color but it also tastes delicious. The celery flavor is noticeable, but subtle enough to not overpower the berries. One whole banana adds a creamy texture.
This is my first – of hopefully many more – green smoothie recipes. It’s great for beginners as it only involves a few ingredients…..mangoes, parsley, water and ice. Make sure your mangoes are very sweet and ripe, otherwise the taste will be bitter and sour. If your mangoes aren’t ripe enough, place them in a brown paper bag the night before you use them. For extra sweetness, add one or two dates into the mix.
Green smoothies have had a tremendous impact on my life. I attribute my change in diet, love for vegetables, and overall well-being – at least in part – to my daily consumption of green smoothies. I lost weight and junk food cravings without even trying. And my improved blood tests were further proof of the power of green smoothies. I really have to give credit to Victoria Boutenko and her two books Green For Life and The Green Smoothie Revolution. Her story has been such an inspiration and the books are a great source for smoothie recipes. I’m planning on regularly posting my favorite recipes and some of them are based on Victoria’s books.
