A Green smoothie: HCG WEIGHT LOSS DIET Approved

February 20, 2013

This is a wonderful green drink to add to any healthy eating plan.  It just happens to be that the ingredients in this green smoothie are HCG Weight Loss Diet friendly.  This is a wonderful way to start the day on the HCG Weight Loss Diet or just any day at all.  I have made it for the past 3 mornings and my partner, son and I have all really enjoyed drinking it together.  It is loaded with nutrients, easy to make and very filling.  There is nothing better than super food, blended up and ready to enjoy.

Creating the Green "smoothie" for the HCG Weight Loss Diet

This delicious beverage can be easily created in less than 5 minutes.   I am so excited to present this to my HCG Weight Loss Diet patients as an adjunct to their program.   I recommend buying all organic produce.

Ingredients for this HCG Weight Loss Diet Green Drink

  • 3 cups of kale torn from stems and in small pieces
  • 4 large stalks of celery chopped
  • 3 sprigs parsley
  • 3 sprigs cilantro
  • 1 pear chopped
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1 cup strawberries (optional)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 8 ounces of filtered water

Creating this superfood green drink

  1. Wash all vegetables thoroughly; chop & cut and toss into a bowl.
  2. Add 8 ounces of water and lemon juice into a blender with 2 cups kale
  3. Blend for 30 secs until just incorporated
  4. Add additional kale, herbs and celery and keep blending for another minute
  5. Add apple and pear and blend for another 30-60 secs until well combined (Do not over blend
This makes enough for 2 days and can be stored in the refrigerator in a glass container.

When to Have the Green Drink on the HCG Weight Loss Diet

I  recommend that our HCG Weight Loss Diet patients have a cup of this drink to start the day.  I do not believe it has to be counted as any of the allotted fruits and vegetables for the day.   If you get hungry throughout the day or at any point in the program, this would be an ideal choice for something to have to keep you satiated. enjoy!
