Not A Fan Of Vegetables?
You actually may like vegetables but the rest of your family does not so you tend to not make them for dinner.
Or you are just bored eating vegetables and want a different way to consume those veggies.
Whatever the reason may be for not consuming enough vegetables there is a sneaky trick I have come up for my family members to eat their vegetables.
It even works with my 9 and 5 year old daughters.
It is called nutrient extraction.
Now if I can get an 9 and 5 year old to drink a green smoothie every morning with breakfast then there is no reason why you as an adult can’t get in your vegetables every day.
The deal breaker is it has to taste good. Correct?
Would you have an objection to consuming your vegetables this way if it tasted good?
Here is what I did to get my kids to consume their vegetables.
There is some initial expense to this sneaky trick. If you don’t already own a blender designed to really grind up fruits and vegetables you will have to purchase one.
I own the Ninja blender, which works great in my opinion.
The recipe below is what I make for my children and they love it. I also love it because I know they are consuming superfoods each and every morning to start their day.
Now there are hundreds of different recipes and combinations you can make. I do switch up the vegetables quite often, the key to making it taste good each and every time is 1/2 of a certain fruit. I will reveal that fruit in just a little bit.
Here are the superfood vegetables and fruit that I used in this recipe.
What I have found I have needed to do since all 4 of us want a smoothie every morning is to make it all in the large blender or else I end up with no smoothie for myself.
If you are making it for yourself or for just 2 people you can use this quantity. It is simple to make larger amounts by doubling each fruit or vegetable.
1 cup Kale
1 cup Collard Greens
1/2 cup Spinach
1/2 cup Blueberries
1 tsp Ginger
1 cup Ice
1 cup Water
Now you can adjust the water and ice as you see fit based on how thick or thin you would like the smoothie.
So the key to making smoothie taste so good is the Banana. It has the right flavoring and thickness that will tone down any vegetables that may have a strong taste or any bitterness.
3 Additional Power Foods To Use In Your Smoothie
There are some amazing health benefits to Ginger and I have another article talking about 7 health benefits of Ginger plus a recipe for you.
What I use in smoothies is about a half inch by half inch size of Ginger diced up. It not only helps with shutting down fat cell production, but also reduces pain and inflammation amongst other great benefits.
You can pack in a days worth of Vitamin C in one smoothie by adding this citrus fruit. It is also a great fruit to provide great flavor to your smoothie.
Considered one of the healthiest foods in the world if you want to boost the health benefits of your smoothie then work in some Broccoli. It is a great detoxifier and wonderful at reducing internal inflammation. Here are some great benefits of Broccoli and why you should be consuming more of this vegetable.
