GREEN SMOOTHIE ON REPEAT
A perfect meal for a busy day. Or a great way to get good fats and greens in between meals. I love to start my mornings with this luxurious green smoothie. The basil and coconut oil give it a wonderfully sweet taste while the lemon and salt add some zing. Try varying the ratio of ingredients to experiment.
This delicious alkalinizing morning drink helps balance pH, deliver micronutrients, induce ketosis and fight infections like candida. It’s light, refreshing and creamy! Drink half on waking and other half before lunch.
