I’ve been banging on for years about magical liquified veggies and I’m not about to stop, green smoothies are truly the gateway to better health.
24 Hours published my favourite recipe last week. It goes by many names, Sweet Lemon, the Gateway and Elle Elle’s Go-To. It’s the simplest of them all yet incredibly nourishing and hydrating.
We’ve served this smoothie to people ranging in age from 9 months to 70 years. All of them sucked it back and cried when it was gone… well not everyone cried but they all wanted more.
The Gateway Smoothie
2 cups filtered water
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 large handful organic spinach, or more
1 organic apple, quartered
1 organic pear, quartered
1/2 lemon, squeezed
Optional – 4 ice cubes
Add ingredients to an upright blender, blend until smooth.
