Non-Sweet Minty Green Smoothie – My New Thang

by Kristen Suzanne in Uncategorized

I’ve been greatly enjoying non-sweet green smoothies for a while now. They’re refreshing, especially if indulging in heavy holiday eating (these were a staple this past holiday season). Perfect for New Year Resolutions in taking health to fresh new levels. They’re light, which gives extra energy during busy times. And, they’re nutritious for getting us back on track after holiday splurges.

Serving them in pretty glasses makes them even more fun (especially for kiddos).

A blender-full of goodness that refreshes my body and feels cleansing.

Here’s the gist of it…

Non-Sweet Minty Green Smoothie

  • 1 to 2 cups water
  • 1/2 to 1 cucumber
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 to 2 heavy handful(s) spinach or romaine
  • juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon or lime
  • handful mint (Don’t be shy… this is the trick! A heavy handful of mint elevates the flavor brilliantly, and you can also add other herbs – rosemary, basil, or parsley are wonderful)

Blend until smooth and enjoy this brightness in your life.

If you want to add oomph, blend in 1/2 avocado.
