(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!
Local honey has multiple skin benefits. One of the many is it helps hold in moisture, it also helps with eye puffiness.
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) 🙂
