Another anti-inflammation smoothie from David! This one has a wonderfully summery flavor from the lemon and berries. It’s kind of like eating cobbler filling. Since this one has a half a lemon—skins and all—he recommends using a Blendtec or Vitamix as it can truly pulverize ingredients like that.
You could omit the whole lemon and just add the juice if you have a regular blender. If you are using a regular blender, really take the time to blend these ingredients thoroughly.
2 cups organic mixed frozen berries
1 cup packed baby spinach
1 cup kale (baby or regular)
1 cup carrot juice
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
2 tbs flax
2 tbs chia
2 tbs honey
1 baby lemon or a half of a lemon (with skin)
1 apple (Honeycrisp or your preference)
1 scoop hemp protein
1 cup ice
Makes about 3 16oz servings
1. Add all ingredients and blend thoroughly. If you find the mixture is too thick and not blending well, add a little water. Serve immediately.
