Smoothie recipe from Dr. Steve Hoffman and Rebecca Hoffman


Stack blender in the following order:


* 1 diced green granny smith apple (we include peel because we use organic)

*  5 to 10 chunks of mango or pineapple

* ¼ to ½ peeled and cut up lemon (lemon keeps smoothie from tasting flat)

* ½ to whole avocado (binds smoothie so it doesn’t separate, gives it good fat)

* Fill the rest of the carafe full to top with chopped Kale and/or spinach

* Fill 3/4 of carafe with water

* Add 4 or 5 ice cubes


 Blend Thoroughly And ENJOY in a nice glass!


Optional ingredients and variations to play around with include:


* Banana – although a slightly higher glycemic index (we use ones we’ve peeled and

   frozen when they’re getting ripe to fast on us, a good alternative if you’re out of


* Celery

* Cucumber

* Dandelion greens

* Chopped fresh ginger root (we usually use about a square inch peeled and diced)

* Coconut water
