Meatless Monday…Green Drinks!

I’ve been going Green Drink crazy over the last few months ever since I got my NutriBullet! As a matter of fact, I think everyone is. This weekend I spent two fun and relaxing days with my girlfriends in Palm Springs just hanging out by the pool, shopping and gambling…which I never do, but hey I won a $100 dollars! Yeah! But needless to say, we ate everything that came our way and now it’s time for me to step up my Green Drink consumption.

The freshest, fastest way to get your veggies is in a smoothie. Try these easy tips and healthy recipes before mixing up a green drink:

Put the liquid in first, surrounded by water or juice so the blender blades can move freely.

Next, add your greens with chunks of fruit or vegetables going into the pitcher last. Start slow. If your blender has speeds, start it on low to break up big pieces of fruit, then work your way up to high for a puree. For blenders with function buttons, pulse a few times before switching to puree mode.

Finally, thicken with ice. Add too much juice or coconut milk? Toss a few ice cubes in the blender and voilà!

Here are a few of my favorite Green Drink recipes!

Stay calm when things don’t go your way!
