- 1/2 of a fennel bulb
- 1 whole lemon, halved, with seeds removed - if organic, include the rind
- 1 green apple (or the apple of your choice), cored and seeded - if organic, include the skin
- 1/2 of a banana
- 1 handful of spinach
- turmeric root (approximately 1 to 2 inches of turmeric)
- 1 inch of ginger root
- coconut water (at least 8 ounces)
- 1 avocado
Chop all ingredients coarsely and put in blender, leaving the avocado for last.
Blend, adding either water or more coconut water to get to your preferred consistency.
This smoothie offers many health benefits: good fats (avocado); digestive aids (ginger and fennel), inflammation prevention (turmeric and fennel); fiber (apple); plus an immune boost (lemon) - need I say more!
Drink it as an addition to any meal, or as a pick-me-up in the afternoon.
From my table to yours - enjoy!
