A Few Simple Ingredients

To make this flavorful smoothie, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • One large avocado
  • Two cups of fresh spinach with any thick stems discarded
  • Two-thirds of a cup of water
  • A half-inch piece of fresh ginger – sliced
  • Half a cup of kefir
  • Half a teaspoon of lemon zest
  • One teaspoon of lemon juice
  • A quarter of an English cucumber, sliced into half-circles and frozen
  • A pinch of salt
  • A tablespoon of cilantro
  • A cup of frozen, seedless, green grapes
  • One scoop of collagen – this step is optional

Prepare a Delicious Smoothie

The only equipment you need to make this smoothie is a blender. In the blender, puree the avocado, spinach, kefir, water, ginger, cilantro, collagen (if you choose to use it), lemon juice, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt. Add the frozen grapes and cucumber. Keep blending to get a smooth consistency. Pour into your favorite cup and enjoy this refreshing treat!

Tips and Tricks

You can use more water and lemon juice to adjust the consistency and flavor of the final product. Don’t be afraid to make this recipe your own by changing things up and adding ingredients like frozen bananas, a drizzle of honey, or substituting kefir for plain yogurt. Keep in mind that avocado turns brown quickly. If you have leftovers from this delicious drink, turn it into a salad dressing by mixing it with a bit more water and salt and blending in parsley, basil, and chives.
