Sweet Green Smoothie


(Recipe updated Oct 8, 2014: I made this again this morning but swapped the fruit for apples (in season) and frozen pineapple- it was even better!)

This makes a very large, delicious green smoothie (I split it with my boyfriend in two 32-ounce mason jars).

I purchased a small bottle of local honey recently from the farmer’s market down the street. I get pretty bad seasonal allergies, especially here in California with the rising temperatures. I have read several studies over the years about consuming raw honey to alleviate outdoor allergy symptoms, so I’m giving it a shot. I don’t typically use honey but the farm I purchased my honey from takes good care of their bees, allowing them to pollinate several different types of flowers so it wasn’t mass-produced and shipped in from afar. If you don’t use honey, feel free to swap for raw coconut nectar or agave nectar.

Makes approximately 64 ounces (two large 32-ounce servings)

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 organic apple (core removed)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 2- 3 cups raw spinach
  • 1/2 large organic cucumber, peeled
  • 1 tsp raw organic honey (optional)
  • 24 ounces cold water
  • 6 ice cubes

To Make: Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

      Sean,

      Thank you for sharing! I had no idea it helped with eye puffiness. I’ve used it before on my skin (it’s very calming on sensitive skin) 🙂
