Monday Special

Let's call today's green smoothie, the Raspberry Mango special.
(we could also call it the Wheat Grass Chard but it sounds much more appealing the other way.)

2 cups filtered water
pint fresh raspberries
1 mango
1/2 lemon, peeled
flax seed
hemp seed
as many greens as you can shove in - in this one I used: spinach, rainbow chard & wheat grass

Mix & Enjoy!

PS - If you are a green smoothie beginner, use a bit more fruit and greens that are mild like spinach, romaine & the like.  Wheat grass, kale & dandelion greens are much more bitter so use them sparingly until you get used to the taste.  Oh, and lemon/lime juice do wonders for bitter greens. ;)
