Day 4 of 7-Day GSC

This new combination is a good one. Both mango and pear have soluble fibre to keep your GS from separating (like when you add an apple).

Insoluble fibre passes through our intestines largely intact - while soluble fibre prolongs stomach emptying time and may affect blood sugar levels as sugar is released and absorbed more slowly.

Mello Collards GS
Yield: 1 quart

1 cup Collard greens, rib removed
1 cup Ataulfo mango, fresh or frozen
1 pear, fresh
2 cups water
  • In a blender, mix together until thick and creamy
  • Mango and pear mellow out the stronger taste of Collard greens in this GS 
  • A perfect example of the simplicity of Green Smoothies - no additives required!

  • Collard greens are packed with nutrition and provide anti-cancer properties
  • An excellent source of vitamins B6 and C, carotenes, chlorophyll, and manganese, one cup of Collard greens provides more than 70% of the daily requirement for vitamin C.
Follow Up:
  • This is Day 4 - and when I borrowed a scale to weigh myself I discovered my weight is down 8 pounds (but this is my second week of Green Smoothies). Snacks - Kelp fronds, Mango pudding (1 banana, 1 mango, 1 date)
