The new year often brings a new focus on healthy living, including eating and drinking more greens. While green juices and smoothies can be nutrient packed, they can also be filled with potential acid reflux triggers. The recipes below will help you safely make a clean start into 2016.

Green Monster

1 cup almond milk

1 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen grapes

1 Tbs honey

1 cup spinach

(Always put the liquid in the blender first when making the smoothies. If you do not have frozen fruit, you can add ice to the recipes instead to make them colder and thicker)

Florida’s Finest

1 cup coconut milk

1/2 avocado (peeled and pitted)

1 cup frozen mango

1 dash lime juice

1 cup kale

Banana Split

1 cup almond milk

2 dates (pitted)

1 frozen banana

2 Tbs peanut butter

1 cup spinach

Peaches and Tea

1 cup green tea

1 kiwi (peeled)

1 cup frozen peaches

1 small scoop protein powder (Green tea has many documented benefits, but can make the smoothie thin. If tolerated, adding the protein powder will make the smoothie thicker.)

Creamy Green Machine

1 cup coconut milk

1 cup frozen grapes

1/2 apple (peeled and seeded)

1 cup spinach

1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

Enjoy!
