Pomegranate, Beet & Lime Smoothie
- Collard greens, or other greens
- Celery, perfect time to use the inner stalks and leaves
- Pomegranate seeds
- Banana, fresh or frozen
- Fresh parsley, as desired
- Lime, juiced or simply peeled
Add as much greens and celery as desired. I use a ratio of about 1:1 for vegetables to fruit, which ends up being about one large collard leaf and all of the inner stalks and leaves of a celery head.
Roughly chop or slice a beet, and add as much as desired. I use about 1/2 of a large beetroot.
Add about 1/2 the amount of veggies used in pomegranate seeds, or more if desired.
Depending on how sweet you want the smoothie, add 1/2 to 1 large banana. I like my smoothies on the tart side, so I use about 1/2, but use as much as you'd like. The more you use, the thicker and creamier it will be, especially if frozen. I recommend using at least 1/2 of a banana for 1 to 2 smoothies for that creaminess; use less, and the smoothie will separate easily and be watery.
Lastly, add a few sprigs of fresh parsley and about 1/4 of a lime, or more if a super tart smoothie is desired. I simply peel the lime and throw it in rather than just juicing it.
Fill up your blender with water until it reaches about 1/4 of the way up your ingredients. Blend on high until smooth and creamy! Enjoy!
