Green Juice Green Smoothie

2 years ago

So ... I`ve launched myself into the craze that is Green juice. I`ve seen so many green juices being made and different varities that it peeked my interest. Since I had been struggling I figured it would be a good way to get some vegetables and fruits in on days where I was lacking. If I have a juice with a filling breakfast (hard boiled eggs, greek yogurt etc) I`m far more satisfied and even full-feeling at lunch time.

I simply add some fresh fruit, vegetables and green tea to my green juice and so far I`ve enjoyed what I`ve been able to concoct. I do make big batches of these, storing them in airtight containers and even pitchers. If the mixture sits in the fridge overnight, it`ll need a good few shakes in the morning to get everything reincorporated. Since I don`t `juice` them (I use a blender) the pulp and fiber is still present which raises to the top of the glass/pitcher and the green tea settles to the bottom. The mixture is essentially a `salad in a cup.`

A friend of mine gave me a basic recipe and I`ve been using that and adding in my own swing of things. Here`s the basic recipe:

Green tea
1/2 Banana

I just eyeball it, blend it up and pour it into individual containers. As it sits in the fridge, the pulp does settle at the top of the drink ... but a quick shake before drinking it all gets re-incorporated. This is more along the lines of a `smoothie` than a smooth juice as there is chunks of pulp in it.
