energize your asana with a veggie smoothie

ever have a veggie smoothie?
does that sound gross?
well it's not, so don't knock it until you try it.

this recipe is the 'gateway smoothie' to help you come over to the veggie-side, plus making it at home you can save the environment & a few spendy bucks!

here's what you'll need to start you off:
1 small cucumber (or half of a large one) - peeled if not organic

1 generous handful of spinach (washed of course)

1 avocado

1/2 a lemon

a little water (like half a cup)

and now what to do:

  1. wash your veggies
  2. get your blender out
  3. cut cucumber into chunks
  4. de-pitt avocado (& yes, de-skin it too), cut into chunks
  5. place the spinach in the blender first, then pile in the cucumber & avocado
  6. add in water
  7. squeeze the lemon over the veggies in the blender
  8. put the top on the blender & smoothify your veggies
  9. pour into 1 large glass (or 2 smaller glass to share) or you can pour it in a bowl to enjoy it as a cold soup (great for hot days!)
the yogadeal: you get 3 servings of veggies in a guilt-free smoothie with no hidden sugars via your own kitchen, saving your wallet from the spendy juice bar. for more great juice & veggie smoothie recipes, pick up a copy of 'jucing, fasting, & detoxing for life.' for just $14.99 it even gives you specific cleanses to target each part of your digestive system & gives you some great charts on what veggies have which superpowers (as in what vitamins they are packed with).
