This Zesty Green Smoothie is loaded with healthy fruits and vegetables for a dairy free way to start your day or refresh after a workout.
I stole a page from Curious George’s Juicy George episode when he adds a radish as a secret ingredient to his red juice. It adds a nice little kick to this smoothie.
If you want to add some protein powder or yogurt, be my guest. But you may need to add a bit more juice to thin it if you use powder. You may also want to sweeten it with a bit of honey or agave syrup if you want it a bit sweeter. My oranges and apples were on the sweet side so I left them out.
Smoothies are notorious for thickening upon standing, so make this just before you are ready to drink it.
This Zesty Green Smoothie is a quick and healthy way to start the day. The radish gives it a nice spicy kick to wake up your taste buds.
- 2 oranges
- 1 apple
- 1 handful spinach or other mild green
- 1-2 radishes
- 1-2 tablespoons moringa leaves or powder, optional
Juice oranges, core and chop apple into chunks, trim root and stem from radishes.
Add ingredients to the blender in order given and process until smooth.
Smoothie will thicken upon standing so drink immediately.
