As promised, here’s another Green Smoothie recipe. This is one of my all-time favorites, not only for its beautiful color but it also tastes delicious. The celery flavor is noticeable, but subtle enough to not overpower the berries. One whole banana adds a creamy texture.
Celery is an excellent source of Vitamin C, Potassium, and Fiber. Moreover it provides plenty of Vitamin K and is said to have cholesterol-lowering benefits. The first time I had a celery smoothie, I was somewhat skeptical of the flavor. Now I buy a big bunch of celery every time I go to the market. This is one of the smoothies I make for friends who have never tried a green smoothie before. If you want to convince your friends or family this might help to sway them. Even Women’s Health Magazine agrees and just featured my recipe on their homepage!
