Extreme Green Blast Recipe2
Not everyone enjoys a pure green drink; many NutriBullet users prefer a healthy, more colorful combination of fruit and vegetables. It was not too long ago when my diet consisted of every color but green as I basically ate nothing but salty, sugary and processed foods. So it is really almost a miracle that my NutriBlasts are now 99.9 percent green!
It comes down to preference. My spouse does not appreciate how my extreme green drinks taste, so sharing is not an option. His NutriBlasts usually include all greens and about ¼ fruit.
I do love fruit and eat at least the daily requirement, but as I progressed through my NutriBullet transformation, I began using less fruit and more vegetables in my drink and slowly, my taste for sweets subsided. It all comes down to your needs and goals. It is not easy for someone who isn’t accustomed to eating vegetables to just start drinking a crazy bright green smoothie. Many of my friends and family who are now loyal NutriBullet users cannot go extreme green and that is understandable. It’s just not for everyone. I am just happy that they are using the NutriBullet to help them meet their daily requirements for fruit and vegetables.
The taste of a pure green drink does take time getting used to, but the benefits are amazing. Also adding a bit of juice from a lemon really takes the sting out of kale and is also great for detoxing. If you are ready to go extreme green or at least give it a try, here is one of my favorite, quick and simple recipes that use the organic blend from the store. This literally takes under 5 minutes to make!
- 1 large handful of organic greens blend – (kale, chard and spinach)
- 1 chunk of cucumber
- ½ small celery stalk
- Some fresh cilantro or basil
- 1 squeeze of lemon
- 1 teaspoon goji berries (okay, not green, but a great boost!)
- Small handful of raw almonds
- Water to max line
- Add all ingredients to your Tall Cup and extract for 30 seconds, or until smooth.
If you do want to sweeten it up a little, you cann use unsweetened coconut water instead of spring water to the MAX line.
This drink is detoxifying and energizing! Enjoy!
