My Apple-Banana Green Smoothie tastes so delicious that most people don’t suspect just how rich it is in “green” nutrition. If you’ve enjoyed drinking smoothies, but never made one, this is your chance to become an instant smoothie specialist.
Smoothies are the ultimate in ease and convenience, and I promise you’ll be able to master my four-step no-fail smoothie “formula” My just-uploaded raw food demonstration video reveals my “secret” to creamy smoothies and turns a simple breakfast beverage into a refreshing meal for Mother’s Day.
Customize Your Raw Food Smoothie
Smoothies can be easily customized to your personal tastes. I go over many of the fruits that can go into a smoothie, both fresh and frozen to give you an overview. Then I get down to the specifics of the apples and banana in this specific recipe, taking you on a “tour” of orchard options including Gala and Granny Smith.
You won’t believe your eyes, but there’s no need to peel apples for this recipe. It easy and there’s a good reason to blend our apples skin-on: they have tons of antioxidants and fiber.
How Green Is My Smoothie?
Then I leave the orchard and head for the lettuce patch. I show you greens in every shade and shape and discuss some of their nutritional benefits.
- Light Greens – Lettuce, Celery
- Medium Greens – Chard, Bok Choy, Spinach
- Dark Greens – Kale, Collards
I talk about how to mix them to get a stronger or milder taste in your smoothie.
The Great Green Smoothie Finale
For the “big finish,” I demonstrate how to blend your ingredients until they’re smooth. I clarify the importance of thorough blending to break down the fiber and make the smoothie easy to digest.
This smoothie is the ultimate in good nutrition...and the taste is nothing short of heavenly.
