Green Drink!

It wasn't green today, because I added blueberries, but normally it is!

The grains I add—flax, chia, and buckwheat.

The fruits and vegetables I added—look at all the goodness you get first thing in the morning!
(Not pictured: frozen banana)

Cherie's healthy drink:

This is for 2 people
2 1/4 Cups water
1 Tbsp. X-agave (natural sweetener that doesn't raise glycemic levels. Has inulin that helps with digestion. Sometimes I don't use it or use less than a Tbsp.)
2 Tbsp oat groats, buckwheat, oatmeal (I switch around what I use)
2 Tbsp. Chia and Flax I just grind it in the blender
1/4 C. yogurt (I have done tofu instead) I haven't been using it lately
1/2 cucumber (skin on) cut in about 4 pieces
2 stalks celery
1 fist full each of the following: Spinach, collard greens, Kale, Italian Parsley, Carrots (I have been freezing the spinach lately. i like it making the drink colder. What greens I use varies. Always kale, celery, and spinach though)
1 c. blueberries
1 Banana (I like it when the banana is frozen)
3/4C. frozen fruit (i.e. strawberry, peaches, pineapple) It varies what I use.

Then I sometimes add a pinch of cilantro

Blend it all up Enjoy!
Have fun with it,and do your own variations. Love, Cherie
