Do the nutritions of the smoothies go away after 10-15 mins like in juices? Do I have to drink them within a few minutes of making or I can make in advance for a day or two?
I have extremely good results with green smoothies, but I make mine almost like a pureee, I dont like them watery. I also make my smoothies VERY high calorie, eat A LOT of them in the morning after exercise on empty stomach and managed to have an extreme skin glow, reduced red marks within few weeks and less scars. From avarage 5 pimples to avarage 2 to no pimples (I guess these are just from the detox, I have massive headaches). I also do oil pulling, not sure if it has any effect on my skin (do it for whiter teeth), but smoothies are amazing.
My FAVOURITE recipe ( I drink or actually eat about 1,5 liters in the mornin, around 1300 calories, than have just a light dinner) :
- 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 tbsp. maca
----> mix with some water until smooth like milk
- add: kale or spinach or both around 4 handfuls ( I only use frozen)
- mixed good quality frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, and 3 other types)- around 250 g
- 1 avocado, sometimes 1 and a half or 2 avocados
- 1/2 pear or max. 1 pear
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- some water to be able to mix, but not to be watery
after it is done, it looks dark purple-green because of the berries. It makes 3 to 4 BIG glasses of moothie-like puree. On top of it I put coconut flour and some chopped frozen stroberries or frozen banana and eat the whole thing within an hour with a spoon. I can also drink it, it is just not watery.
I LOVE it.
This is my favourite part of the day.
