Smoothie of the week: Beauty Booster Smoothie
This awesome smoothie comes from Healthfully Ever After.
"I wanted to keep this smoothie realistic. It is a very specific shade of olive green. It's not pretty. But it's real. Some smoothies that are touted as healthy have to do a lot of covering color with lots of extra fruit and berries and sugar for taste. But you know what? Berries don't always have to go in a smoothie and WTF is the point of adding table sugar? The taste of this smoothie is AMAZING even if it is slightly ugly. If you love ginger, this is your new bev. And if you need to eat more greens, same goes for you."
This quote from her blog is really what a lot of what we do is all about. She is right. By the time you are done making this, you will find the appearance off putting. Close your eyes and drink it. The taste is actually a terrific blend. The nutritional value is amazing. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
Here is what you need:
- 2 navel oranges, peeled
- dates to taste (I used 2)
- 1 handful kale, destemmed/deveined
- 1/2 cup cranberries
- 1 cup reverse osmosis water
- 1/2 inch ginger, peeled
- 1 small apple, cored
Add all the ingredients to a blend er a mix to desired consistency. You will need a strong blender for this one.
