Smoothie Recipe: Green Boost

Well, its back to school time, which means back to germs time.  On Wednesday night, my oldest daughter, Jordan, woke up in the middle of the night complaining of not feeling well. She did not have a temperature, so we just assumed it was allergies and sent her back to bed.  Then Thursday morning, Jordan greeted us with a fever and a nasty virus. Anyway long story-short (saving you the nasty details) as she started to feel better Friday afternoon, when Mia came home from school not feeling well with a fever... Yay, the virus had spread!  I knew I had to take drastic action, I cleaned & disinfected everything in my house. Opened the windows, aired out my house, and made my Green Boost Smoothie for everyone.  Here's the recipe...

Green Boost Smoothie
Makes 2 smoothies


1 celery stalk
6-8 baby carrots
2 handfuls spinach
8oz coconut water
1 tbs ground flax seed
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
Juice from 1/2 lime

Cut celery & carrots into smaller pieces, make it easier for the blender.  Blend coconut water, flax seed, celery, carrots, and spinach.  Then add mango and pineapple, I use frozen to make the smoothie cold and refreshing w/o adding ice, blend.  Add lime juice, and blend to desired thickness.  If its too thick, add a little warm water.  Pour, enjoy, and fight those nasty back to school germs!!
