Congratulations Anne H. and Yvonne R!
The ingredient combinations our Simple Green Smoothies’ community has come up with during out Feature Friday Recipe contest have our mouths watering for more. Anne and Yvonne are the winners this week with their super food green smoothie recipes that will keep your bodies nourished with an amazing amount of vitamins and minerals. Yvonne gets adventurous with bok choy as a green vegetable option. And Anne’s green smoothie recipe is no doubt an energy booster that will keep you rockin’ throughout the day.
This superfood smoothie is packed with some amazing nutrients. The mighty green kale is an excellent source of manganese, which helps build bones, and supports connective tissues in the body. Chia seeds are full of fiber to support a healthy digestive system as well as provide support to the brain’s development with the essential fatty acids. Goji berries are a sweet smoothie topping because they are rich in antioxidants.

This smoothie uses the mild tasting green, baby bok choy, which is known as a Cancer-fighting cabbage because of it’s good source of beta carotene (beta carotene also supports eye health). Bok choy is a cruciferous vegetable, which can cause gas, so we don’t recommend this as a frequent green to use in your green smoothies. But tossing it in a smoothie every now and then gives you an excellent dose of vitamin A and C. In just one 9 calorie cup of bok choy, you receive 63% vitamin A, 52% vitamin C and 88% calcium of your recommended daily value.
