Easy Peasy Green Smoothie
1/2 an Avocado
1 c (or as big of handful as you would like) of Spinach
Few Mint leaves (fresh or dried)
1c Apple Juice
Simply blend and enjoy!
Delicious, nutritious and fast. What an easy way to support yourself.
Want to get into the details of why it’s so good…
Avocados are very nutritious. They contain high amounts of potassium, folate, vitamins K, C, B5, B6 and
E, as well as fiber, antioxidants, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, vit A, B, B2 and B3.
They are also high in healthy fat, oleic acid to be exact. Yes fat can be very healthy, the right kind that is.
One of their magical properties is they actually help your body absorb other plant base vitamins (A,D,E &
K) as well as antioxidant (carotenoids), part of why it’s great to combine with your spinach.
Spinach is also very nutritious and filled with phytonutrients (vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E & K,
magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, fiber, omega 3 and the list goes on)
One of my favorite things about spinach is how easily accessible it can be. It is easy to grow even in
containers, grows rapidly and is an early season crop.
Mint is also very nutritious – contains protein, fiber, iron, manganese, calcium, potassium, magnesium,
vit A, C, B6, Folate and riboflavin.
Also an early season crop and being a perennial you can plant once and harvest forever, how easy. I also
love the access to year round mint as it is very simple to dry and store.
Apples are such a staple in our diet. Easily grown in our climate they are therefore locally accessible for
the majority. By pressing apple and canning the juice you can keep a year round organic local supply
right in your pantry. They are also nutritious (contain Vit A, C, calcium, iron, protein and potassium).
