Day2 - November 2012 GSC

Start your day with sprouts which may supply the highest amount of nutrients of any food per unit of calorie. Packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, chlorophyll and enzymes, they are easily digested and assimilated by the body!

Sprouts n' Berries GS

2 cups water
1 pear sliced
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana, peeled
1-1/2 cups mixed sprouts
  • Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth and creamy
Blueberries:  good for inflammtion with sky high levels of antioxidants
Pear:  antioxidants and pectin, a soluble fibre
Banana:  potassium which may help promote bone health
Sprouts:  alkalizing with many times more nutrients than fully developed plants


If you have already discovered that Kale can taste a little too green when you add it to a Green Smoothie...here is one for you to try!

Mango Kiwi Kale GS

2 cups water
1 large Atoulfo Mango, peeled and seeded
1 banana, peeled
2 Kiwi fruit, peeled
Splash of fresh lemon juice
4 leaves of Kale
  • Add first 5 ingredients to blender, blending into a liquid
  • Remove and discard centre stem from Kale leaves - add remaining leaves to blender
  • Blend all together until smooth
  • The GS will be nice and thick - you can always add water to thin it out
  • Fresh lemon juice counters too green a flavour - so always taste test and add more as needed
  • This was made in a Vitamix blender which gives a velvety texture
  • If using a regular blender some Kale bits may remain, try blending longer
