LSN’s Green Smoothie Energy Blast

Green smoothies are my favorite ways to start my day. It fuels and fills me up, cleans and energizes my body. This recipe was an accidental creation. My husband just happened to throw all this into the blender not really knowing what to expect. Little did we think that it would become such a hit. So now this is the official Live Simply Natural Green Energy Smoothie Blast. 

LSN’s Green Smoothie Energy Blast 

The ingredients in this smoothie go great together, I think I’ve had it everyday this week. I swear I’m about one green smoothie away from turning green myself. Hulk green! Just kidding, but this smoothie is our favorite at the moment. We even had it for dinner one night, just because I was feeling lazy and needing a break from cooking as this is a great meal replacement.

We use it often for when we are out going out and don’t want to be stuck hungry somewhere with no options to eat. Plus it’s full of Kale which is great for detoxifying the body. The health benefits of kale are eminence, incorporate it in your diet. Your body with thank you for it!

Health Benefits of Green Smoothies

Rich in beta-carotene (vitamin A), a powerful antioxidant that helps boost the immune system and possibly protect against some chronic diseases and cancer.  The kale in this recipe is one of the few greens with a good amount of calcium and it’s especially high in magnesium.  This promotes a healthy heart and long lasting energy.  Just one cup contains 40% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium, which is very important for bone health and to protect against osteoporosis.  It also contains 10% of the recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune diseases.  And to top it off it is also high in iron, which is essential for good health and the formation of enzymes, which help transport oxygen to various parts of the body.  

I know this will be one that you enjoy, use it often, and share it with your family and friends!
