Savory Green Smoothie

  • What's in it? 

Water, tomato, celery, cucumber, lemon, lime, greens (spinach, kale, or mixed baby greens), turmeric root, avocado

  • Where did I find it?

This blend was inspired by The Blender Girl Salty Alkaline Kale Green Smoothie
  • Why do I like it?

I was craving a green smoothie that wasn't sweet, so that means no fruit.  This one was fresh and tasty without any fruit to create sweetness.  It has a tangy, tart taste which is a nice change from the conventional green smoothie.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I made this while doing a juice/smoothie fast so salt was off limits.  Instead I added some lemon juice for brightness and celery to lend some saltiness.  I added the turmeric root for some punch to make up for the lack of salt.  I omitted the garlic, probiotic powder and liquid aminos as they were not ingredients I wanted to ingest during a juice/smoothie fast.
