“Eating healthy is too expensive!” I’m sure we’ve all heard or said this many times! I’m going to show you how to make a cost effective green berry superfood smoothie! We know that most of us aren’t consuming the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables that are needed for optimal health. So how do we get the essential nutrients that we need daily without breaking the bank and spending hours in the kitchen?
The doTERRA Greens are a convenient and cost effective supplement. They are ethically sourced with wholesome ingredients.
Let’s break down the Green Berry Superfood Smoothie
The doTERRA Greens are a superfood supplement that gives you one to two servings of your daily fruits and vegetables. The Greens are full of powerhouse ingredients of moringa, acai, cabbage, collard greens, dandelion, kale, parsley, spinach leaf, alfalfa, barley grass, oat grass, pineapple, mango, gojiberry, as well as Lemon and Ginger essential oils.
Citrus essential oil
You can add any citrus essential oil to this smoothie. Lime, Wild Orange, and Grapefruit are all great options, but we are going to use Green Mandarin. I love the Green Mandarin because it’s a little sweeter than the other citrus oils. When taken internally it’s also soothing to the nervous system and supports the digestive system. All citrus oils are high in limonene and are supportive of detoxification and lymphatic drainage.
Berkey Water Filter
I can’t stress enough the importance of drinking filtered water! Check out my blog post on the Berkey Water Filter. You can also take your Greens with a glass of water! Add your Greens to the water with a drop of citrus essential oil and mix it up with a frother!
Frozen Mixed Berries
I love adding frozen fruits to all of our smoothies! It’s easier than adding ice cubes and it’s more cost effective! Berries are great for fighting free radicals and are one of the best sources of antioxidants. I highly recommend wild Maine blueberries. Another great resource is the Anthony William books linked below if you want to know more benefits of eating fruit daily.
