Ingredient Notes:

Spinach: Spinach is a great source of fiber with a number of positive health effects both on the digestive system and systemically. It increases satiety, contributes to healthy bowel movements, balances intestinal pH and when fermented by our gut microbes, produces beneficial metabolites for the body.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are not only refreshing (95% water) and low in calories, they have high levels of important phytochemicals and trace elements, and minerals.

How to make a green smoothie:

  1. Remove the kale from the stem and core the apple.
  2. Cut the apples, cucumber, and celery into smaller pieces.
  3. Add all of the ingredients to the blender
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Adjust flavor to taste and enjoy!

Expert Tips & FAQ:

Get Creative: Customize your smoothie by adding more of ANY of the ingredients. Even add in some parsley or cilantro!

Storage: Enjoy the smoothie immediately or store it in a jar in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

What is your microbiome? The human microbiome is a community of 38,000,000,000,000 (that’s 38 trillion) microorganisms, mostly bacteria, living in and on your body. The genes harboured in these trillions of microbial cells are essential for human development, immunity, and nutrition. There is a close relationship between what we eat and our gut microbiome, which means that we can improve our health by modifying our diet. No surprise there, right?

How to support your microbiome: To further support a healthy microbiome, I recommend incorporating Seed’s DS-01™ Daily Synbiotic into your routine. DS-01™ is a pre-and-probiotic containing 24 clinically and scientifically studied probiotic strains (and 53.6 billion AFU) for benefits in and beyond the gut. Think healthy regularity, ease of bloating, smooth skin, heart health, and so much more.
