Veggie in the Belly
Although I don’t have a strong aversion to vegetables, I’m also not one of those people who can just magically chomp down vegetables like a rabbit. My way of getting all those healthy raw vegetables is to make it into a shake! It’s so simple. I stick everything you see on that plate, a few ice-cubes, and a touch of water or iced tea all into the blender and hit blend. Voila! 10 seconds later, I have a perfectly green and delicious shake. The exact recipe follows after the picture.
- 10-15 blueberries
- 2 red kale leaves (without the thick stalk at the end)
- 2 handfuls (approx. 2-3oz) of spinach leaves
- 2 3inch celery sticks
- Tiny knob of ginger (approx. 1/4inch by 1/4inch)
- 3oz of water or blueberry iced tea
- Handful of ice-cubes
Place all the ingredients into the blender and blend well. You might have to gently shake the blender a bit for the veggies to shift down and become blended. Alternatively, stop the blender and push the remaining veggies down with a spoon. You can also add in a scoop of protein powder for an extra nutritious shake.
I know the shake doesn’t look all that appetizing because it’s green, but honestly, what did you expect? I did add in a bunch of green vegetables!
