Gaia Heart Openning Greens: Fresh Cold Pressed Green Juice/Smoothies ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿƒ

I love greens๐ŸŒฑ 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!๐Ÿ’š
