Thanksgiving Morning Juice or Smoothie Recipe

Posted By Diane Eblin On November 20, 2012 @ 6:00 am In Dairy Free,Detox,Gluten free,Recipes,Vegetarian/Vegan | 2 Comments

Start your day off on Thanksgiving with an amazing juice to make your body happy! It will thank you for sure.

On this day where we tend to stuff ourselves with too much of everything, why not start your day off with something to help your body.  The ingredients in this juice or smoothie recipe is filled with antioxidents (fight off anything someone walks in the door with), tons of vitamins and minerals, protein, anti-cancer fighting ability, anti-bacterial and reduce inflammation.  Do you need more convincing.  OK, this glass of juice is very low calorie which I’m guessing is a good thing today.

Ingredients:

8-10 kale leaves, de-stemmed and chopped

handful parsley leaves

1 small to medium zucchini, chopped

1 orange, peeled and chopped

1/14 – 1/2 inch piece ginger, peeled

1 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)

Directions:

Place ingredients into your juicer one at a time and juice.  Stir, pour into a glass and drink!

If you would rather have a smoothie place everything into a high powered blender like a Vitamix, add in a little water and a few ice cubes.  Start slow and then move it up to high.  If it’s not blending you may need a little more water.  Choose the consistency you like.

If you want this to be sweeter add in an apple.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
