Basic Green Thickie Recipe

Healthy Start Complete Meal Green Smoothie Recipe

Just one taste of this smoothie and you will be hooked for life.

If you are new to green smoothies – this is a great recipe to start with because it’s just so addictively delicious.  And I promise you can’t taste the greens, just a heavenly sweet and intensely tropical taste.

I love making this fantastically refreshing smoothie for my breakfast when I have a busy day ahead of me.

It takes literally one minute to make in my Blentec blender and I know that when I turn this into a Green Thickie and have it for breakfast, I’ve had a good portion of healthy foods to see me through until lunch.

The chia seeds contain protein and are great for keeping you hydrated.  The Pineapple contains a compound called bromelain which not only enhances immune function but also prevents cancer, improves gut health and promotes healing. Mango also is extremely beneficial to health, antioxidants found in it have been shown to prevent against leukemia as well as breast, prostate and colon cancers.

Thinking of treating yourself to a new blender?  I recommend you get a high speed blender for making Green Thickies as it will turn out incredibly smooth and free from green chunks!  It is also so much faster than using a standard blender.

The blender I recommend and love is a Blendtec as you can just press the button and it performs the magic.  You don’t have to do anything!  (plus you can make your own healthy nut butters and frozen fruit ice cream which kids and adults adore).

The only thing about high speed blenders is they are expensive.  I truly believe they are worth the investment and the best thing I ever bought as I use it so often.  

But if you don’t want to splash out on a brand new high speed blender right now, a good alternative is to get yourself a refurbished blender because they are like new – but a lot more affordable.

Blendtec’s latest discount on refurbished blenders is now live!  This month, the following deal is available:

30% off the price of refurbished blenders.  These blenders are certified refurbished which means they have passed full inspection and meet the stringent standards that Blendtec hold for their machines.  With a full 7-year warranty, these discounted reconditioned blenders will perform and delight for many years to come!

Have a wonderful and healthy day
