Live Green SLUSHIE – “OMG, pretty much the best thing I’ve ever had!”
My son Auden just loves this drink.
And I have to agree… this Live Green Slushie really is yummy. And it’s so no-brainer easy, you can whip it up all the time. Zero fat. Zero sugar. Pure living, freshly-juiced yumminess, to make you feel as vibrant as it looks!
Make one of these instead of a cocktail… instead of a dessert… after a hot and sweaty workout… at a party… the next time you’re settling in to watch a good movie… A delicious, gorgeously green treat you can feel virtuous about rather than guilty.
The texture of this frozen Live Green Smoothie resembles the velvety Icees I used to get at Target when I was growing up. I know they’re still around, but of course there’s no way I’d buy one of those things these days, not when I can make some of my own with live ingredients that’ll zing my health as well as my taste buds. Just… watch out for brain freeze!
(If you don’t have a high-powered Blendtec or Vitamix blender, your Slushie may end up being more of a Chewie. But that’s just good motivation to get a good machine sometime soon, isn’t it. )
Recipe for: Live Green SLUSHIE
For this recipe, you’re going to make fresh juice first, then blend it all together with ice in your blender.
- large bunch of kale
- 4 heaping cups of red grapes (roughly one large bag from the grocery store)
- 4 heaping cups ice
Juice the kale first, to a little less than 1/2 cup. Pour into the blender.
Juice the red grapes, which will come to about 1-1/4 cups when juiced. Pour into the blender.
Add the ice and blender until velvety smooth. Pour into glasses. Pours out into four 8-oz glass or so. [/private]
