Whole Juicing

In my efforts to kick it up a notch health-wise I made myself a green smoothie.  It was Coconut-Grapefruit and I used it to replace dinner last night.  The texture is a bit thick because of the greens.  I took some in for my co-workers this morning and one noted that it looked a lot like pesto.  We agreed the taste was not half bad. .  I’m also doing two-a-day workouts as I count down to my cousin’s wedding next week.  I’m a bridesmaid and want everything to fit just right.

Coconut Grapefruit Smoothie

Here’s the recipe:

Coconut-Grapefruit Smoothie Recipe

  • 1/2 red grapefruit, peeled and deseeded
  • 1 kiwi, peeled
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 teaspoon dulse flakes (optional)
  • 8 ounces unsweetened coconut milk

Add all the ingredients except for the spinach and kale to your blender and hit the “pulse” button a couple of times. Now add the greens and blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.

 

Found this on the Incredible Smoothies site.

Let me know if you try it!!
