Green drink…just made. Consume right away to reap all the benefits. 😉

If you don’t like to eat your veggies, maybe this would be an easier way for you to get them down.  I’ve never had a vegetable aversion.  I was teased for being a “rabbit” as a kid, always eating something in the vegetable family.  I don’t juice as in squish my veggies and get only the juice.  I drink the juice and pulp together. I believe the fiber is highly essential to good health.

(Collard, oak leaf lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, green basil, purple basil, from garden.  Organic baby carrots and ginger from store.)

This green drink today was: two good handfuls of oak leaf lettuce, 6 cherry tomatoes, 10 baby carrots, 8 basil leaves-purple and green, 10 mint leaves, a good handful of cilantro, 4 medium size collard leaves, ginger about an inch and a half piece and add enough water to your liking.  For this amount I added about 1-2 cups of water as well as 4-5 ice cubes.  If you like it with more liquid; add more water.  I usually drink mine down about half way and add more water. I will do this one or two more times (adding water). I try and drink around 96 ounces of water a day.

The mint really makes this refreshing.  Have fun blending your veggies. My blended drinks are different a lot of the times.  I use what I gather out of my garden and what is in season.

What kinds of drinks do you drink just for the health of it?

Drink green every day.  Drink to health.  Peace, Koko
