A great way to alkalize and energize your day!

Some people think they don’t have time to make a smoothie before heading out the door in the morning. Then they actually take more time to stop and get coffee and a bagel. Your choice: pure energy or an acidic breakfast?

Making a smoothie is easy, and it only takes 10 minutes!

Why are green smoothies such an energizing breakfast? When you blend your food, your body can digest it easily and quickly. You get the energy from the food, and your digestive system gets a break from processing. It is a win-win! Green smoothies are loaded with vitamins and minerals, very alkalizing and full of antioxidants. This recipe uses only low-sugar fruits to support healthy blood sugar balance in the body. A typical banana, strawberry and yogurt smoothie sounds yummy but can wreak havoc on your blood sugar balance.

With all of my live food recipes, I encourage you to experiment with the greens you like, spices and quantities of ingredients. Be flexible! You will be surprised at how refreshing the Green Vitality Smoothie can be.
