Quick Smoothie Recipes

A couple of my clients recently asked me what are some good smoothie recipes so here are a few of my favs.

Simple Wake Up Smoothie:
1. 1 Cup of Water
2. 1/2 cup of Pineapple
3. 2 Small stalks of Parsely

Simple Chocolate Smoothie:
1. 1 Cup of Water
2. 1/2 cup of Pineapple
3. 2 Tblsp of 100% Organic Dark Chocolate Powder (Whole Foods carries this in the fruit/nut section.)
The chocolate will have no sugars and provide great antioxidants as well as very good fat.

Yummy Tummy Smoothie:
1. Half of a banana
2. Half of an orange or 4 Strawberries
3. 1 Cup of Water

Super Detox Breakfast Smoothie:
1. 1.5-2 cups of water(do not add juice due to the sugar or milk due to the calories)
2. 2 Stalks of Parsley
3. 1/2 stalk of Kale or Chard
4. A very, very small handful of Baby Spinach
5. 1/2 of a Grapefruit or Orange(due to the sugars be sure to not put more than advised, but this makes the shake taste great!)
6. 2-3 Small Strawberries

With this one be sure to blend very, very well for about 1 minute to make everything into fine pieces. This drink will keep your blood sugar low in the morning which in turn keeps insulin levels low. When insulin is high- like right after eating sugary or high glycemic index carbs- you store fat. We want it low so you lose fat.

It will also assist in detoxing your body of all harmful chemicals, toxins, and fecal matter that is clogged within you intestinal folds. You will feel much, much better in as little as a week. I have been drinking this shake(or a similar version of it) for a few months now and feel great!
