Defer that cup of coffee. This ultimate green smoothie is full of energising plants. It will also help you look better naked.
And you're also enjoying two servings of the most nutritious vegetables that exist. One cup of kale is more than your daily needs of vitamin A and vitamin C. That's anti-ageing, immune strengthening antioxidants. Spinach has similar properties, as well as being the second densest source of folate on the planet.
Another popular ingredient with similar chlorophyllic (not a real word) properties as these green leafs is spirulina. This blue green algae is renowned for packing a punch. Health bloggers will incorrectly tell you that it's a great source of protein because it is in fact 60-70% protein. However, when a serving sizes is one teaspoon, you're only getting roughly 2 grams per serving. Your biceps don't get aroused by those kind of numbers. However, despite the minimal protein, spirulina is a green superfood. The nutrients are loved by your liver, and therefore your skin.
Enjoy this spirulina inclusive recipe for sustained energy and a detoxed liver.
