If like me, you are not big on juicing because of the pulp waste, these fruits and vegetables can definitely be used in your daily smoothie.
Remember the thickness of a smoothie is a choice, it all depends on the appliance you are using and the amount of liquid you add.
For example the fatigue recipe:
My carrots and beets are partially cooked, I use some of the beet or carrot cooking water for my liquid and the lemon is also in juice form. The spinach can be fresh or frozen and my apple of choice is usually Fuji.
All of these flavors blend very well together and make for an enjoyable smoothie drink.
My personal opinion is that a good healthy smoothie should have 2 or 3 of each, vegetables and fruits plus a tsp. combination of wheat germ, flax seeds and/or chia seeds.
For extra creaminess you can add a little plain yogurt.
The whole idea of a smoothie is to be adventurous and try different healthy combinations that you will enjoy.
I welcome any questions, sharing or comments you may have.
