We want Raw Green mean Smoothies!

We want Raw Green mean Smoothies!

I made these smoothies after my morning work-out! This is my 4th invented Green smoothy! This smoothy is a bit more sweet because of the sweeter apples! They were super easy to make, refreshing & very healthy too!  This was our drinkable breakfast! ;)

What the heck is coconut water, I hear you say? 

Lovely Organic Coconut water!

Lovely Organic Coconut water!

Coconut water has many health benefits. It is the clear liquid inside young coconuts. Coconut water is a natural energy or sport’s drink due to its high potassium & mineral content. It also can help you lose weight, it is low-fat, all-natural, super-hydrating, fat-free, it is good for your skin, cholesterol-free, it is nutrient-packed, potassium-stacked & has mega-electrolytes. It is really energizing!! So it is good for you! The only downside is, that it is costly. I buy my organic coconut water, from the brand Dr. Antonio Martins, bottled in cool 500 ml cartons, in my local Bio-planet & it costs me: 2.99 €. So, I drink it only 2x/week!

Recipe for 1000 ml = 4 cups

Ingredients:

500 ml organic coconut water

2 ripe organic sweeter apples, Unpeeled, cored, cut into chunks

2 teaspoons raw barley grass powder

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 tablespoon broken flaxseed

4 heaped tablespoons oat bran

Method:

1. Place every ingredient in this order into your Vitamix container & put the fitted lid on.  Use the tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. Blend on high & on full-power until it is fully mixed. This can take between 15 to 30 seconds. Turn all power off & taste! You must taste the sweeter apples, the coconut & the barley grass at the end!

Yum Yum Yummmmmm! :) Enjoy with a loved one!

    I love coconut water- I wish it wasn’t so expensive!! I think the apples in this smoothing would be it so refreshing with just the right amount of sweetness!
