"Juicing Tuesday"


     It's Tuesday!!!  Everyone's juice day, right?  I hope so.  I created a smoothie that has a powerful healing for the body.  My Green Kryptonite Smoothie...

     Wondering what's in this bottle?

your shopping list

Ready to blend!
  • Rice Milk (non-dairy) 2 cups 
  • 1 riped Mango
  • 1 riped Kiwi
  • 1 riped Banana
  • 1 organic Swiss Chard leaf  (can add more leaves)
  • 1 .5 oz pack of Hemp Hearts (raw shelled hemp seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon of Chlorophyll liquid

Why I choose these ingredients?

Rice Milk is an alternative to dairy and soy milk.

Hemp Seeds are a good source of essential fatty acids - Linoleic acid, Omega 6, and Alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA).  It contains essential amino acids making it an ideal source of protein.  Hemp seed comes from the cannabis plant but has low or none of the tetrahydocannabinol (THC) cannabinoids found in marijuana.

Mango a fruit that has shown to have antioxidant compounds to protect against colon, breast, leukemia, and prostate cancers.  The compounds are:  quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid, and methylgallat.  Mango has high levels of fiber, vitamin C, and pectin to help lower cholesterol levels.  It's great for the skin internally and externally.  Mango promotes good eye sight, alkalizes the whole body, helps diabetes - normalize insulin levels in the blood, improve sex, digestion, and boosts immune system.

Kiwi a fruit that helps reduce the blood clots, decrease triglycerides, repair the body of DNA damage, and function as antioxidants.  Kiwi has vitamins Folic acid, C, E, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, and Zinc.  Also, it helps prevent constipation and some cancers.

Banana gives the best energy! (see posting)

Swiss Chard a powerful dark leafy green with vibrant colors.  Everything must be eaten - stem and leaves.  "The Institute of Food Technology in Germany revealed that Swiss Chard stems are loaded with glutmaine, amino acid that boosts the immune system and bolsters the body's ability to recover from injuries and surgery."  Click here for more details on peels, stems, and rinds

The swiss chard leaves contain about 13 different polyphenol antioxidants.  The primary flavonoids from the leaf is syringic acid.  It helps regulate blood sugar levels and promote lung, vision, and bone health.  Swiss chard is an excellent anti-inflammatory.  It provides vitamin C, K, A, B carotene, lutein, zea-xanthin, B complex, copper, calcium, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.

Saving the best for last...
