Craving A Reset? Try Our Winter Green Smoothie

Well, the holidays are over and for some, it’s time for a reset. If you don’t feel like doing juice or soup cleanses, no problem – they’re not for everyone. Instead, a “reset” can simply be enjoying healthy foods. For me, a reset always includes a smoothie: whenever I feel gross after a long weekend or holiday, or my body is simply craving a large influx of fresh fruits and veggies, I always start my day off with a smoothie. This January, it’s my winter green smoothie.

My smoothies differ from summer to winter. In the summer, I load up on fresh fruits in my smoothies, like fresh raspberries or grapefruits. In the winter, I usually go for frozen produce like blueberries and spinach or make my warm smoothie recipe (it sounds weird, but don’t knock it till you try it). For a refreshing post-holiday season bevvy, here’s my favourite winter green smoothie recipe.  

Winter Green Smoothie

This smoothie is loaded with fruits, veggies, ginger and lemon, so it’s super refreshing. Also, if you want extra creaminess, feel free to throw in a 1/2 chunk of frozen banana or 1/2 an avocado. 

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp size chunk of ginger
  • ½ cup water (feel free to add more or less – it depends on how thick you like your smoothies)
  • ¼ cup spinach or 1 kale leaf
  • ¼ cup frozen cauliflower
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ lemon
  • Optional: 1 tsp spirulina

To make, simply blend on high for 2 to 3 minutes until fully blended and enjoy!
