Today's Green Drink

 

Ingredients

1 handful kale
1 handful other greens in fridge (I used escarole and collards)
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup brown rice
2 cups filtered water

Blend in blender. Drink!

Note* This is a very green health drink. You can make green smoothies with bananas and more fruit, which neutralizes the taste of the greens. That being said, the more you drink green drinks, the more your taste buds adjust and before you know it you're tasting the natural sweetness of the greens and (gasp!) even craving them rather than sugar!

Benefits? Oh yes.

Calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc and vitamins A, C, E and K, fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll and many other micronutrients and phyto-chemicals
