Green Smoothie

coconut milk kefir green smoothie

Blend together

½ – 1 cup of water
Juice of half a lemon
Juice of one lime
1 stick celery
1 cup (handful) romaine lettuce
½ green apple (optional)
2 tablespoons of whey protein, collagen, or gelatin powder

Romaine lettuce is delicately sweet yet there is only one gram of sugar per head of lettuce—furthermore, romaine lettuce is among the best foods to unstagnate and drain a congested liver. When combined with lemon and lime (which also only have 1 gram of sugar a pop), the juice becomes this wonderful tangy, slightly sweet glass of goodness. The celery seems to help people with sugar cravings.

Try this without the apple at first—see if it isn’t already sweet enough  😉
