NATURAL ENERGY GREEN JUICE RECIPE
Simply put, this fresh green juice is simply a mixture of water and natural plant sugars along with inherent vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Cinnamon is a key ingredient here, it makes this “green” juice especially tasty and provides tons of antioxidants as well as helps makes this a great juice for diabetics. This natural energy green juice is a quick and easy way to give your body tons of fantastic nourishment and sustained energy without having to eat pounds of fruits and vegetables. This whole juice will give you a sustained boost without the caffeine jitters most people are used to and you don’t have to waste money on energy drinks full of iffy ingredients. Plus, if you’re used to drinking excessive amounts of caffeine for that big energy boost (more than 500-600 milligrams, equivalent to 5-7 cups of coffee), your body will be dehydrated as a result…and that is not a good thing for our healthy bodies!

Recipe type: Green Juice
Serves: 3 Cups
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup (12 ounces) filtered or coconut water
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup kale
  • 3 celery sticks
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup ice
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into the blender in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. For Blendtec: Press SOUP* button.
  3. For Vitamix: select VARIABLE, speed #1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to VARIABLE, speed #10, then to HIGH. Blend for 1 to 1.5 minutes, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades. Serve immediately.
Notes
* We use the SOUP button on the Blendtec with ice or frozen fruit since it runs for 90 seconds and will better liquefy produce into a juice vs smoothie consistency.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT CINNAMON
One tablespoon of cinnamon has the same amount of antioxidants as 1 cup of pomegranate juice, which has even more than red wine, green tea, blueberries, and asparagus. Antioxidants help keep us youthful, rejuvenated, & alive. Cinnamon is an extremely powerful blood cleanser, as it has some of the best anti-bacterial properties ever seen in such a common spice. In addition, new research results are showing the great benefits cinnamon has on the liver, which too is vital for cleansing the blood. Cinnamon’s scent alone offers empowering effects in concentration /alertness / focus. In one study, researchers found that a loaf of bread that had significant amounts of cinnamon was far slower to mold (as in days) than non-cinnamon counterparts. Cinnamon is one of the most powerful spices in terms of health and is likely sitting in your pantry this very moment. Give your body the royal treatment by enjoying the protective, cleansing, and rejuvenating health benefits that cinnamon, the Queen of Spices, has to offer.

      Thanks for your posting. My spusoe and i have constantly observed that many people are desirous to lose weight as they wish to show up slim plus attractive. On the other hand, they do not usually realize that there are additional benefits for losing weight in addition. Doctors assert that obese people suffer from a variety of ailments that can be instantly attributed to their particular excess weight. Fortunately that people who are overweight and suffering from several diseases are able to reduce the severity of their particular illnesses through losing weight. You possibly can see a gradual but notable improvement with health while even a moderate amount of weight loss is attained.
