Day 1 - July 2013 GSC

Welcome to our Monthly Green Smoothie Challenge!

This will be the last GSC for awhile - taking the summer off! But there are many recipes on this blog to help you continue drinking a new GSC every morning.

Here is a new one to try. I wanted to add some fresh mint that is growing in a container outside my door. This time I added one half a cup, next time I will try one cup.
Blueberry Mint GS
Yield: 1 quart
2 cups purified water
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 orange, peeled and seeded
1/2 avocado, peeled and seeded
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • In a blender, mix together until thick and creamy

  • Avocados combine brain healthy Omega-3 fatty acids with natural vitamin E
  • Rich in monounsaturated fats they boost heart health and help lower blood pressure

This Green Smoothie combination is a tasty way to use up any leftover watermelon.
Strawberry Watermelon GS
Yield: 1 quart

2 cups water
2 cups watermelon, rind removed
1 banana, peeled
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 celery stalks
1 cup spinach
  • Add fruit to blender first, blending until smooth
  • Then add celery and spinach to blender
  • Blend all together until smooth and creamy
