Greens are among the most nutrient dense and healthiest foods one can eat, giving us the most raw vegetable benefits. Thus, the more we can consume, the better. It is difficult to chew large quantities of greens, but by placing them in a smoothie, large amounts can be eaten. Additionally, they can be made very tasty by adding raw fruits and vegetables to the smoothie.
Following is a recipe sent in by Health Minister Lydia Eskander who lives in South Plainfield, New Jersey. Lydia's email address is Lidett2@aol.com
"Dear Rev. George, For the past month, I have been drinking a green smoothie on a daily basis. . . Here is the recipe for my smoothie:
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cup to 1 cup distilled water (amount determines a thin or thick smoothie)
1-2 bananas (depending on size of banana)
1/2 cup frozen mango (or any other frozen fruit)
1/4 cup fresh pineapple
1 tablespoon of ground flax seed
Blend in Vita Mix (or other powerful blender). ENJOY!
*ORGANIC INGREDIENTS ARE ALWAYS RECOMMENDED.
