Moody Girl Eats: A Go-To Green Drink


I’ve been drinking this amazing green drink ever since I saw the actress/co-founder of the Honest Company, Jessica Alba, on a variety of talk shows several months ago.  On the talk shows, Jessica Alba revealed her secrets to her hot new body after giving birth to her baby in her new book, The Honest Life.  One secret that she revealed in her book is that she sips on this green drink throughout the day to help keep her feel full.  So, she didn't feel the need to snack as often throughout the day. I never had a chance to buy her book to get the exact measurements of the drink, but the ingredients below is what I was able to gather based on her various television appearances.  When I heard Jessica list out all of the ingredients together I knew it was going to be pretty amazing. I made a couple of changes to the recipe based on my tastes and I wanted to share it here with you all.  Let me know what you think about this drink if you have a chance to try it.  Do any of you have a favorite smoothie or juice that you like to mix up on a regular basis?  Let me know all about it in the comments.

Go-To Green Drink
[Adapted from The Honest Life, by Jessica Alba]

Ingredients:

2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 whole cucumber, skin on, chopped
2 apples, chopped (either a golden delicious or granny smith)
2 big handfuls of kale (2-3 large leaves)
1 whole lemon (juiced)
1 teaspoon of a peeled fresh ginger (you can add more to taste)
2 tablespoons of MILA chia seeds (OPTIONAL - I added this ingredient for extra nutrients).
3-4 cubes of honeydew melon or watermelon for sweetness.  Or you can also use a pinch of stevia or a tablespoon of honey.  (I added the honey to this recipe because I personally think it tastes great with it).
5-7 ice cubes
Water

Directions:

Makes about 2 servings.

Place all ingredients in a blender and add just enough water to get it going. Blend until smooth and sweeten the drink to taste. Pour the drink in a glass and sip it right away with a straw and Enjoy!
