all things green in my mid-monday afternoon green reboot smoothie. this is my go to lunch when i’m doing a modified monday detox {full day of green smoothies with a large green salad for dinner}.

a day of green smoothies helps to kick my sugar cravings and get me back on track after a weekend where i may have eaten one too many handfuls {or bags} of trail mix {the kind with chocolate chunks and peanut butter drops}.

  • 1 c water
  • ¼ c raw apple cider vinegar - optional addition for cleansing the system {can also sub for plain kombucha}
  • 2-3 tbsp hemp
  • 1 tbsp matcha - optional addition for energy boost

  • ½ cucumber
  • ½ avocado
  • ice
Instructions
  1. blend all ingredients together until you get desired consistency for drinking. {i add extra ice as i personally love mine freezing cold}.
  2. feel free to add these health superfoods to your green smoothie if you have them on hand as well {1/4 c aloe juice, 1 tsp bee pollen - another energy booster, 1 tsp cod liver oil, 1 tsp spirinula, 1 tbsp maca, 1 tsp of powered tumeric or pinki size chunk, thumb size chunk of ginger}.
Notes
notes:
*you want to use raw apple cider vinegar {acv} with 'the mother' still in it so it will look like there are chunks floating in it or settled at the bottom. and you may want to start with a smaller serving if you are sensitive to the acv taste. i personally LOVE Meg's homemade acv from modernroots.org. it's so mild, it's one of the only acv i can drink straight out of the jar. otherwise i recommend purchasing Bragg's organic raw acv.

*not all ingredients are required to make the 'perfect' smoothie {there is no such thing as the perfect smoothie in my world} use what you have on hand and play around with the ingredients/additions until you find what tickles your tastebuds.
