Veggie Smoothie - Recipe 4

These smoothies are amazing! They really rejuvenate you and give you a good clean out. Just make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day -- at least five cup for children, and at least eight to nine for adults.

Recipe 4 - makes 6 cups

  • 1 1/2 cups of turnip greens / stems
  • 1 1/2 cups of spinach  / stems
  • 1 cup of purple carrots
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 lemon, with some skin
  • 1/4 cup of leftover cereal
  • about 4-5 cups of water (whatever it takes to blend it smoothly)
Personal Take: Pretty good. Turnip greens are pretty strong, but their taste was in the background. I think that it is the avocado that neutralizes it. The taste was mild -- it did not pull in any particular direction. It was thick, but not of a consistency that would choke you. =) I should have blended it a little longer, but it was relatively smooth. My favorite part was the green color! It is just a beautiful shade of green. It definitely looks appetizing.
