Ingredients

2 c spinach
2 c romaine
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 tbs flax oil
1.5 c red grapes
6oz blackberries
ice
water as needed


(If you have a powerful blender, just put it all in and blend away!) Otherwise:



1. Put in 1/2 to 1 cup of water and about half of the leafy greens. Blend until smooth. Add remaining spinach and romaine.



2. Squeeze in lemon juice. Gradually add remaining ingredients, blending as you go to keep it smooth. Add as much ice as you like to make it the right temperature for you.



3. Add water as needed to make it desired consistency.

Notes

Some days I am in less of a mood for a deep green smoothie, but I still want all that wonderful alkalinizing health from my leafy greens! So, I will splurge and use FRESH blackberries instead of frozen. It is AMAZING how much extra flavor they have that way!

This smoothie is antioxidant PACKED! Along with the wonderful, cool hydrating effects of the cucumber, the skin-healing properties of red grapes, and the omega-rich benefits of flax oil. And the blackberries actually turn this green smoothie into a beautiful burgundy!
