Gaia Heart Openning Greens: Fresh Cold Pressed Green Juice/Smoothies πŸ’šπŸπŸŒ±πŸƒ

I love greens🌱 drinking them, eating them, wearing them. Green reminds me of Mother Gaia, and her magical healing powers. It reminds me of my childhood days laying in the grass even though I knew it would make me itchy. Green reminds me of strength and stability. I was remembering the cartoon Popeye the Sailerman and how he used to eat his can of spinach before a big fight, or whenever he needed that extra boost. “I’m strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach… I’m Popeye the Sailerman!”. That cartoon was iconic for getting kids to eat their greens back in the 90’s. 

 

I try and have a green juice or smoothie a day. If I don’t put greens in my breakfast smoothie, then I will make a green juice for later in the day. Or I will do both in one day, you can never have too many greens!

The benefits of drinking green juice daily:

  • Rejuvenation of cells
  • Healthy skin glow
  • Improved energy
  • Weight loss
  • High in Amino acids (protein building blocks) 

Here I have included two recipes, one for a delicious sweet green juice and another for a scrumptious green protein smoothie. 


Green Juice:

1 1/2 green pears

1/2 a large seedless cucumber 

1 whole bulb of celery

Thumbs length of fresh ginger



Green Protein Shake:

1/2 a banana 

Handful of kale

Handful of mango

Half an avocado 

Half a pear

Splash of hemp seeds

Dash of camu camu powder

1 scoop of vanilla pea protein 

Fill 3/4 with milk of choice, I use hemp

And top off with a few cubes of ice

Enjoy!πŸ’š
