After my fabulous THK Juice Detox, I had to head out for a business trip and completely got off my juicing kick. I was eating less than healthy food and as a result, I was actually left with daily stomach cramps and pain. Big bummer, but also a great reminder that we cannot just clean ourselves up and then throw in a bunch of junk. Does not work. So luckily I came across this awesome Green Smoothie that my good friend, Christopher Slawson, and Raw chef genius created.
Chris runs and extremely successful raw food restaurant in Palm Beach, Florida, and is always impressing me with his limitless creativity and this smoothie is definitely up to par. So if you can’t stop by Christopher’s Kitchen, here is the recipe and whip it up yourself. Super easy, super nutritious and a great breakfast replacement. Enjoy!
CHRISTOPHER’S KITCHEN’S ‘SWEET GREEN’ SMOOTHIE
Makes: 1 large smoothie
2 leaves kale
1 handful cilantro
1 handful parsley
Pinch fresh ginger
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 cup pineapple
1/2 cup mango
Raw honey, to taste ( I love Wee Bee)
Goji berries, for topping ( my favorite are by Dragon Herbs– the Best!)
In a juicer, juice the cucumbers, kale, cilantro, parsley and ginger. To that juice, stir in lime juice.
In a blender, add the veggie-lime juices, pineapple, mango and honey. Blend until the smoothie is the consistency of a thick shake.
Top with goji berries. Enjoy!
