Green Velvet Smoothie

Just finished reading "The China Study" and it has really confirmed for me, that eating a plant based diet is the way to health. Not that I ever doubted this. I can highly recommend to read this.

It is cold  and horrible outside. People on the tube are sniffling and sneezing all over you.
You need something to defend you self against bug and germ attacks.

So here is my favourite green smoothie recipe. A shield of goodness to protect yourself!

Green Velvet Smoothie 

For this you would need a juicer and a very power full blender, mine has 1.2 horse powers could possible blend a motor bike.

Juicing : 3 apples and 1 broccoli stalk. This is a brilliant way to use the broccoli stalk after you eaten all the lovely florets.

Blending : Pour juice into the blender with 5-6 Brazil nuts, 2 dates, 1 tsp flax seeds, 1/2 Avocado and a handful of ice cubes.
Blend this until it is velvety smooth - pour - drink - enjoy!

Books for juicing I can recommend  "The Juicer Master" Jason Vale. And also "Crazy sexy diet" by Kris Carr.

Keep on juicing!
