Day 3 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Skin Booster Smoothie

Hmmm… Day 3. Not as bad as the Pineapple Clense, but not nearly as good as the Banana Berry Clense from Day 2. I was feeling confident about todays ingredients, but then I saw that receipe said not to make with milk.  Oh well,  I prefer creamier smoothies,  so milk it is!  Luckily it wasn’t bad ;).   I was really worried that I would waste all the ingredients because I couldnt suck it down.  But the banana flavor was quite overpowering so it worked out good.   27 days to go…

Skin Booster Smoothie

Vitamin E – Skin Booster Smoothie 

¼ Small Field Cucumber (about ½ cup sliced)
1 Frozen Banana (or fresh)
½ Cup Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
1 inch piece of Ginger (to taste)
1 tbsp. Chia Seeds (optional)
1 Cup of Spinach (or alternative greens)
1-2 Cups of Coconut Water or Water (not milk)

Instructions: Wash all your produce. Chop and put into blender with a small amount of liquid to start. Add more as needed until you reach your desired consistency.

I made my shake using about 8oz of Almond Coconut Milk and no Chia Seeds or ginger.   I prefer the frozen berries and banana … makes it cold and creamy like a smoothie should be!   I really need to get some Coconut Water … sounds yummy!
