Today I felt like a less filling drink for my first meal because I slept in (lucky me!) and didn't want to eat lunch too late.
In my book I describe 10 blended green juice recipes, and today my choice was a base of orange juice with my algae powders that I am very into right now!
3 cups of freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tsp AFA algae flakes
2 tsp InLiven Probiotic (contains spirulina)
big handful of spinach
handful of mint leaves
Blend for about a minute and serve for two
Mint is one of my fave greens for green smoothies, its a low oxalate green and tastes sensational, especially with chocolate!
2 cups of water (or coconut water for absolute decadence!)
1-2 Tbs of raw cacao
2 handfuls of mint
optional - add 1-2 drops of pure peppermint essential oil
Mint is a good source of Niacin, Phosphorus and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fibre, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.
