Green Smoothies

I, Dr. Winifred Abramson, have been increasing the amount of raw foods in my diet and “green smoothies” are one of my current favorite meals—I have one for breakfast almost every day.  

Green smoothies are basically a blend of fruit and leafy greens and are a great way to add more nutrient-dense foods to your diet. I like to start by blending a banana (or some apple, pineapple, mango) with some frozen berries and then I add my greens: I usually go for chopped romaine lettuce, a small head of baby bok choy, or a few handfuls of baby spinach, none of which you can really taste once they are all blended up. Add some coconut oil to promote weight loss and optimal health, Whey Protein for protein, and make your smoothie even “greener” by adding 1 Tb. of Spectra Greens, if you like.
