Sometimes we feel tired, a little tied down, and we need a proper cleanse in our bodies as well as some extra energy. This juice helps with both, along with an extra added boost of skin cleansing on the side! ;-) To make this green juice, follow the steps below! I hope you like it! :)
STEP 1: Get some Spinach!! :) Here I used baby spinach, but I'm sure any size is fine as long as it fits to cut up in your blender! I would recommend about half a cereal bowl of spinach for a good medium "shot" of the green smoothie.
Spinach is good for a variety of things, for example, it is a good supplier of protein, iron, magnesium, etc. In cleansing, it cleanses your liver, and helps release constipation cycles for a cleaner bowl movement. If you're stuffed and feel like you need a healthier lifestyle or movement in your body, this method's for you! Afterward drinking this, you'll definitely feel just how "clean" your body starts become!
STEP 2: The extra added boost is…CUCUMBER! So go on and grab that cucumber and cut it into tiny pieces. Along with also refreshing your body, washing out toxins, and hydrating your body, you'll use cucumber because it is also good for your skin, and who doesn't want rejuvenated skin? ;-) The amount I used was about 5-10 cm of the cucumber.
STEP 3: Put the spinach and pieces of cucumber into the blender. If you are using a hand blender, then you can put the pieces into your glass.
STEP 4: Don't forget the juice! I've heard of people using milk, however I prefer using my multivitamin juice. How you decide what juice or liquid to implement depends on what you know you are desiring to get from the juice. I want energy, so, multivitamins gives us a variety of vitamins needed to jumpstart the active "awakening" and building process within our immune system. (P.S. be careful of sugar content in some juices, and also as said before, this is for a quick green juice to jumpstart the process of healthy eating, so it does not replace eating your daily vegetables). For a medium "shot* I would say that 125ml of juice would be enough to blend with.
STEP 5: Make sure all your ingredients are in the container, and then blend blend….and blend! Then you're done. :) Timing-wise, it should take about 3-5 seconds (depending on the speed), however it should not be that long. When you open it, there should not be any large pieces of spinach or cucumber, if so, blend again.
STEP 6: Voila! And it is finished. Pour your green juice into a glass and you're ready to go! :) Drink away and don't forget to smile. =)
-For "easier access", wash your spinach the night before so you won't spend time doing so in the mornings. All you'll need is to grab your bowl of spinach, quickly cut your cucumber, grab your juice and blend. It's quick and easy.
-I suggest doing this 2 times a week or just once in a while for a good boost and cleansing (you can use the rest of the spinach for other purposes/recipes).
-Once again, this is just for starting a process of something greater, a healthier lifestyle, enjoy and don't stress out! =) Have a great day familia!
