At the beginning of the year Lynn and I decided we wanted to add more veggies to our diet. I'm pleased to report we've been doing well. :) When that afternoon slump hits (for me it's between 3:00 and 4:00 pm), I like to mix up a healthy green drink--followed by a piece of Dove dark chocolate of course (the green drink cancels it out :)). It does the trick and usually tides me over until dinner.
Not only does this recipe taste good, but it's my favorite because it only uses five ingredients--celery, cucumber, apple, fresh ginger and spinach.
I've been cutting everything up ahead of time and storing the ingredients for one drink (half the recipe) in a Ziploc bag. Super simple to throw into the juicer.
And the polka dot glass makes it even more delightful. :)
Here's the recipe:
OPRAH'S GREEN DRINK
3 stalks celery
1 chunk fresh ginger
1 c. spinach (I usually add a bit more)
Combine all the ingredients in a juicer. Blend until smooth. Makes 2 glasses.
