Glowing Green Smoothie Recipe

Green smoothies tick all the boxes for on-the-go women whose health is a priority — they’re super easy to make, portable, and give you a huge dose of vitamins and nutrients that will help build your immunity.

Celebrity nutritionist, Kimberly Snyder, says, “Blending helps make greens’ full spectrum of nutrition readily available to the body. Nutrients are encased inside plant cells and getting their benefits requires these cells’ walls to be ruptured. Greens need to be worked down to a creamy consistency, but most people simply don’t chew that much. Blending addresses this problem, helping your body absorb the maximum amount of nutrition from your greens.”

It contains over three cups of dark, leafy green vegetables — that’s more than most people would consume in a week — and will help you on your way to glowing skin, healthy hair, endless energy, and a stronger immune system.

RESCU Loves: While fresh is best, you can store the Glowing Green Smoothie in the fridge for about two and a half days or freeze portion sizes of it and thaw it out the night before you consume. If you know you’re going to be pressed for time in the morning, this is the perfect on-the-go breakfast solution.

RESCU Recommends: We’ve used the Vitamix Professional Series 500 to blend our Glowing Green Smoothie. This high-performance, easy-to-use kitchen gadget blends your greens into the smoothest of smoothies in just a few minutes and self cleans in 30 seconds. Blending (instead of juicing) also means your smoothie will retain the fibre content of the greens and fruit, which is essential for sweeping toxins from the body and keeping your digestive track clean and healthy.
