Although it’s -17 degrees outside and feels like -27 with windshield factor I still crave delicious green smoothies. Taste so good and are so good for you.
I know most of you are probably skipping out on your daily dose of green power so I thought I would put up an easy and delicious recipe for you guys to try. For all of you asking me for green smoothie recipes here you go. Now you have no excuse but to try one.
If you are wondering why you should be eating raw collard greens:
” This food is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Thiamin, Niacin and Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium and Manganese.
1 ataulfo mango, peeled and pitted
1 cup frozen blueberries
3 big collard leaves, stems removed (unless using vita-mix)
1 1/4 cup water (add a bit more if you want a bit thinner consistency)
Yields 3 cups
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until consistency is smooth. Blending time will depend on how powerful your blender is.
Guaranteed to brighten your day up!
