Green Smoothie

Green smoothie is the best start to the day. This green smoothie is a little different then the classic Plant Paradox green smoothie, because it contains ginger, instead of mint. Some people with GERD can’t tolerate mint and ginger is a better alternative.

I also added deseeded cucumber for anti-inflammatory benefits (omit in phase 1 and 2), flaxseed meal for extra healthy fats and fiber, and collagen for healthy joints, nails and hair.

I chose to sweeten the smoothie with allowed 1 tsp of raw honey a day, but you can substitute honey with other allowed sweetener of your choice like Stevia extract or pure Monk Fruit extract which I find as the best natural sugar alternative without any aftertaste. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 inch peeled and deseeded English cucumber
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1-2 scoops Collagen Peptides
  • 1/4 cup ice cubes
  • 1 cup water

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powdered blender or nutribullet and blend on high until smooth and fluffy, adding more water or ice cubes if desired.
