In a large pitcher add lemon/lime slices, mint and some blueberries.
Add the water. I love to use sparkling water but also natural, filtered water is fine.
You can add some ice cubes as well if wished.
Do you like green drinks? I love them! Green drinks are very healthy and it’s an easy way to get your daily greens. I personally prefer juicing, but both juicing and blending are very beneficial but in different ways.
“Juicing is a process which extracts water and nutrients from produce and discards the indigestible fiber. Without all the fiber, your digestive system doesn’t have to work as hard to break down the food and absorb the nutrients. In fact, it makes the nutrients more readily available to the body in much larger quantities than if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables whole.”
“Unlike juices, smoothies consist of the entire fruit or vegetable, skin and all and contain all of the fiber from the vegetables. However, the blending process breaks the fiber apart (which makes the fruit and vegetables easier to digest ) but also helps create a slow, even release of nutrients into the blood stream and avoids blood sugar spikes. Smoothies tend to be more filling, because of the fiber, and generally faster to make than juice, so they can be great to drink first thing in the morning as your breakfast, or for snacks throughout the day.” -Food Matters
So I want to share with you my super green drink recipe!
Of course you can do this green drink also in a blender! In that case add all the above ingredients to a blender along with 1 cup chilled water and blend.
Enjoy! Cheers to your health!
