Jen’s Basic Green Smoothie for Hcg Diet Phase 25052
A refreshing, Hcg Diet friendly green smoothie. You can vary the ingredients based on your taste preferences and needs for the day. Stick to the basics greens and play with ginger, cinnamon, mint, etc.
You can even use your permitted milk allowance for a creamier smoothie (I use almond milk as a sugar free substitute for milk)
Prep: 5 mins
1Throw everything into a blender (I use a vitamix) and blend well. Makes about 4 servings you can keep in the fridge for later. I have 1 or 2 a day. I store them in old Kombucha tea bottles so I can grab one on my way out the door for a snack while I'm out.
You can use lemon and ginger for a zesty taste OR... stevia for a sweeter flavor.
2 cupsSpinach (or approx 2 handfuls)
2 cupsKale (or approx 2 handfuls)
1 Green apple (I use Green apples because they have less sugar but you can use Red if you want to vary.) I will also occasionally use the allotted handful of strawberries instead of the apple.
1 dashCinnamon (Optional - Metabolism booster)
1 Ginger, fresh piece, about 1/2 inch or more to taste. (optional)
4 cupWater - (or equiv water + ice for a more slushy chilled smoothie)
