Green smoothies are my favorite breakfasts, to start the day with fresh, whole and delicious living foods. This recipe makes about 1 quart.
Cutting board, knife, High speed blender such as Vita Mix or Blendtec (a bit pricey but worth every penny).
Put all ingredients in a high speed blender or smoothie maker and process until smooth. Enjoy!
Tropical fruits can be used by non-diabetics. Diabetics need to avoid them or use them sparingly.
Avocado pits are high in fiber and are very nutritious.
Chia Seeds are high in Omega 3 and protein.
Greens and Hemp are wonderful sources of vegetable protein.
Stevia is derived from leaves and is heart healthy. Whole Stevia leaf powder can be bought in some health food stores. I got mine online from a raw food store.
