So, the New Year has found us, and as mindful as I like to be when it comes to consumption, I do give myself the latitude to indulge in some of the holiday goodness. (Not to excess, of course!) But I can tell when it’s time to ratchet it back a few notches. Or when I’ve had more acidic food/drink than usual and need to alkalize. This smoothie is so delicious and soothing–hydrating (which is much needed in this dry, cold weather), and is great for combating inflammation, stabilizing blood sugar, and delivering a punch of antioxidants and minerals that our bodies need.
Give it a whirl–let me know what you think!
4 celery stalks
1 c kale leaves
1/2 green apple
1/2 lime (or juice of 1/2 a lime)
1 T coconut oil
1/2 c almond milk
1 c pineapple
Chop up, throw in blender (a VitaMix works beautifully, but any good blender will do), and power up! 🙂
I use frozen fruit because I like a thicker drink, but fresh is great, too!
