New Green Smoothie Diet by Hilary Greenleaf

I was recently contacted by Hilary Greenleaf, author, educator, and nutritionist. She sent my a copy of her new book, The New Green Smoothie Diet: Going Green Never Tasted so Good. In her new book she talks about the benefits of green smoothies and gives recipes and tips on making them. It goes over detoxifying the body, how to achieve increased energy levels, and how to incorporate green smoothies into a weight loss plan. She even gives examples of smoothies to help detoxify the body, increase energy, fight heart disease, prevent cancers, boost the immune system, help with diabetes and make skin and hair beautiful.

The picture below is of the clear skin smoothie I made. This smoothie provides all the nutrients needed to help you fight acne and to protect your skin against scarring. I've posted the recipe below. It called for guava but I'm not sure we can find that in Alaska this time of year however, I substituted with mango. It makes enough for three!

Clear Skin Smoothie
2 cups water
1 guava (or mango)
1 orange, peeled and seeded
1 1/2 tsp finely ground nuts
2 cups spinach or Swiss chard
1 tablespoon flax seeds, finely ground
