‘This Glorious Greens Drink is Delicious!’
I recently wrapped up leading my Spring Vitality Cleanse–what a great 2 weeks!
Participants said it felt great to be inspired to cook healthy foods again and they loved the recipes.
One surprise hit was the Greens Drink Recipe. The cleansers loved this juice during the program and many of them have continued to drink it everyday. I can’t blame them–what a delicious and easy way to get lots of nutrition in your diet on a daily basis.
Glorious Greens Drink
The pear and banana thicken this juice so the texture is more like a smoothie than just juice.
1 cup water
1 cup coconut water (fermented or regular—or you could just use 2 cups of water)
1 small head Romaine lettuce, chopped
3 handfuls baby spinach
1-2 celery stalks
1 pear, cored
½ bunch parsley, stems and all
Juice from half a lemon
Combine the water, lettuce and spinach in a blender and process, gradually moving to higher speeds and blending until smooth.
Next, add the celery, pear and parsley and blend. Lastly, add the banana and lemon juice and blend until smooth.
Drink a serving immediately and refrigerate any extra for drinking throughout the day.
NOTE: This is best made in a high-powered blender. You can use a standard blender to make this, you may want to peel the pear and de-string the celery.
