When the springtime hits, I like to take on a challenge by doing a raw foods cleanse. With social gatherings and weddings surrounding me these days, I have shortened my usual 6 week cleanse to 3 weeks. I like to think of it as spring cleaning for my body. I thought it would be fun to share a delicious and easy raw food recipe.
If you aren’t into doing a full-on raw cleanse, this hearty, delicious green smoothie is a great way to supercharge your body with a bountiful amount of delicious nutrients. This wonderful recipe for one of my favorite green smoothies is from one of my favorite raw-food blogs: rawmazing.com
Good Morning Green Drink
2 cups organic spinach
1 1/2 cups organic grapes
2 organic carrots
1/2 organic cucumber
1/2″ piece of ginger
1 stalk organic celery
1/2 to 1 cups water
Combine all ingredients in a blender or Vitamix. Start with 1/2 cup water and add more to desired thickness. Blend until smooth.
I also like to add some raw protein powder and instead of water, add some coconut water for added flavor. The best part about these smoothies is that you can easily change the ingredients to best suit what you prefer!
