Day 23 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Tropical OJ Green Smoothie

Ya, this one is a big NO GO — BLEH!  I really enjoyed the Orange Strawberry Green Smoothie from Day 14 so I was really expecting this one to be yummy as well.  That was unfortunately not the case.  It seemed as the celery was just too overpowering and there was only a slight hint of orange citrus.    Perhaps this one would be better without the celery?  I still haven’t picked up Spirulina, so I substituted my Earth Greens Powder, which is like eating 5.5lbs of organic veggies in my morning green smoothie!

Orange & Banana Green Smoothie 

Tropical OJ Green Smoothie

1 Rib of Celery
1 Handful of Kale or Red Leaf Lettuce
1 tsp. Spirulina *optional

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.
