I've been going green at breakfast time, and this little cocktail is one of my favorites! The recipe comes from the February issue of Real Simple (one of my guilty pleasure reads, stolen from my mother's stash of magazines). With only four ingredients, it's simple, pure and surprisingly sweet. It also helps sustain the illusion that I'm in a tropical paradise when in fact it's freezing and windy outside. As I'm sure you've heard countless times, raw juice is associated with a variety of health and beauty benefits: it can brighten complexion, stave off cravings, assist in weight loss and help your body perform at its best. This juice is great on its own as a quick and light breakfast, and as I discovered this morning, it's also the perfect complement to toast with PB&J! To make two servings of this smoothie, all you need is a blender and:
2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
2 cups of spinach
1 1/2 cups of frozen mango
1 cup of green grapes
1/2 cup water
Blend together and drink to your health! PS: I'm looking for new juice recipes to try, so if you know of any stellar combinations, please let me know!
