Every day, just below, you will see the day’s recipe or post. Poke around, have a little fun, let us know what you like (and don’t), what you try (or won’t). Ask questions, make suggestions, and while you’re making stuff, make yourself at home, friends!
Not everyone has a killer sweet tooth. (I don’t understand this at all, but yet it’s true!)
And not only that, diabetes is common enough these days that one of the more common questions I receive about green smoothies is how NOT to make them sweet.
And then on top of that, there are whole cancer- (and other illness-) fighting schools of thought that say to nix the sugar entirely, even if it comes from fresh fruit.
So for all of us who will enjoy the change-up, here is a smoothie AND a juice for you that I hope you will enjoy thoroughly. Even I (sweet tooth like crazy!) find these recipes to hit the spot. They are so cleansing and satisfying!
Non-Sweet Minty Green Smoothie
contributed by Kristen Suzanne at www.KristensRaw.com
1 to 2 cups water
1/2 to 1 cucumber
2 stalks celery
1 to 2 heavy handful(s) spinach or romaine
Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon or lime
handful mint (Don’t be shy…this is the trick! A heavy handful of mint elevates the flavor brilliantly, and you can also add other herbs – rosemary, basil, or parsley are wonderful)
Blend until smooth and enjoy this brightness in your life.
