The Glowing Green Smoothie

Hollywood is buzzing about the exciting news of Hilary Duff’s pregnancy. Just yesterday, the actress and mom-to-be was spotted on her way to a pilates class with a mysterious green drink. That drink is none other than celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution, Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie. Made up of about 70% green vegetables, the Glowing Green Smoothie, packed with minerals and chlorophyll, will keep her body healthy and balanced throughout her pregnancy. It is not just the quantity of greens that makes the smoothie so amazing—because the fruits and vegetables are blended (“pre-digestion”), your body is able to absorb more of the vitamins and minerals without working so hard. 


The Glowing Green Smoothie



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 water and chopped head of romaine to blender. Blend at a low speed until smooth. Add celery, apple and pear and blend at high speed. Add cilantro and parsley (which help chelate heavy metals out of your body). Finish with banana and lemon.

So, I just had to give this a try. My mom came down since she loves smoothies so much and we made it. I at first wasn't to sure with the color but after trying the smoothie, I was in shock at how tasty it actually was. The flavors are great and you can really taste each ingredient together. Plus, I think it was super easy to make. I didn't have the organic ingredients, only where I live there aren't any stores that carry these products but only a few.
