While doing a 5-Day Reset with my FASTer Way VIP community, I could not drink the green smoothie recipe the way it was written. Cilantro? Cucumber? Anyone else struggle with the taste of these ingredients?
So after much trial and error, I finally tweaked the recipe and found the perfect combination that I know you will love, even if you are not in a constant battle with your taste buds!
Ingredients to blend:
1 cup coconut water
1 cup loosely pack parsley
1 cup loosely packed baby spinach
1/2 cup cucumber
1 cup pineapple (frozen)
1/4 cup mango (frozen)
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon fresh ginger
One of the things I love about this green smoothie is that the ingredients have so many benefits!
- Lemon juice - boosts immune system, aids in digestion, balances ph, flushes liver and kidneys
- Coconut water - vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, regulates ph balance
- Ginger - helps with digestion, reduces inflammation, improves cholesterol levels, lowers blood sugars
- Parsley - improves digestion, supports gland health, aids bone health
Full disclosure, this smoothie was not my favorite from the Reset, but it did taste better and go down a lot easier at the end - when my taste buds got their act together!
